Dear Andre,

These photos (see below) were taken when Raymond stayed with us at our home in Swanage for the last time in August 2013. I thought that it would be appropriate for one of these or both to be added to the Shinfield Website. You will notice that his smile was still evident even though he was well aware of the seriousness of his illness. He never complained and was always optimistic for his recovery.Trusting that that you will share my views .  

Kind Regards, Alan.
