To Frank and Avril …
My inspirations to be a brave as Avril for always putting a smile on her face and giving me peace of mind over a cuppa tea and a biscuit - even when I left Greenwich Gardens we kept in touch and it was a sense of security to still know I could make a difference but regularly visiting! We would put the world to rights, plant flowers, drink endless amounts of tea whilst taste tasting my homemade cup cakes I would make for avril! Looking after frank and avril made such a huge change to my mindset to be as kind and caring as they were and it was truly a pleasure and an honour to be apart of there life’s!
