Condolence from Barbara Tutty on May 12th, 2015 6:56 pm

In 1945 as a new member of the Liverpool teaching staff, one of the first persons I got to know was your mother. As a V.O.N. she visited my classroom, and was a life-long friend. In the years we both lived in Greenfield, we got to know Rod and Dot well. Shared gardening secrets, kept a check on Rod’s pumpkins. It was a privilege to be invited to their planked salmon suppers! What feasts they were! Now you have only memories of these lovely people. My thoughts are with you all at this time.
Sincerely,
Barbara Brittain Tutty
