It is impossible to express my thanks to the staff at The Dales who looked after him for the past two years of his life. It would be unfair to name any individual but they all lifted our spirits and allowed me to leave him at The Dales with confidence that he was safe and cared for and that I would be told immediately if there was a problem. Although he repeatedly asked why he could not come home, he told me many times what a great bunch they were and, when he was able, loved the humour and teasing they shared.
Neither of us knew such skilled and kind people existed in our previous active world and I will always remember them with heartfelt gratitude.
I was touched to see you all at the funeral and the ones missing were obviously holding the fort at The Dales. Thank for you sharing in his send off.
