part 2:
In August 2013, my dear Keith sadly passed away and my visits to Five Oak Green became scarce. I did keep in touch by mail though, as over the years, I have come to love Marjorie and Syd as much as my own family. The current Covid-19 pandemic did not help matters and I now regret that my visits were so few and that it has been so long since I last saw Syd. On the other hand, I will always remember him the way I first met him: warm-hearted, always cheerful and optimistic, intelligent, hard working and modest and most of all a most loving and thoughtful husband to my sister-in-law.
Dear Syd, I will keep you in my heart forever.

From: Gerda Wood- Cools
It was in 2005, early in summer and very early in our relationship, when Keith first took me to meet his sister Marjorie and her husband Syd. They were by far the most loving and harmonious couple I ever met, absolutely devoted to one another. They were both so warm-hearted and welcoming, they made me feel at home instantly.
Later on, when Keith had moved to Belgium and we were visiting we were always thoroughly spoilt with home cooked food made with fresh vegetables from Syd’s garden. Indeed, Syd’s beetroot was the best I ever tasted.
Syd was always happy to see us, took us around the garden to show the latest additions. He was always full of ideas : new brick flower boxes, an ornamental signpost... So many self-made details that made the Coach House and its garden truly unique. Indeed, Syd was always active and everything he undertook he did with passion and dedication.
At the dinner table he was good company, full of funny stories. The twinkle in his eyes when he told us yet another one of the many anecdotes he had stored in his memory...
When he heard that I was on the lookout for books about vintage dolls – actually for a good friend of mine who collects dolls – he scoured a couple of boot sales and on my next visit, he presented me with a box full of dolls in Victorian dresses. Not exactly the kind of dolls my friend collected, but it was so sweet a gesture and so typical of his generosity. I put the dolls on top of the closet in the hall at home and they became a real eyecatcher for visitors.
Marjorie and Syd joined us on several trips, to Hampton Court and the Royal Gardens of Kew, to the Isle of Wight.
They also came to Belgium several times, where Syd of course took a special interest in our local building styles. He especially enjoyed our visit to Bokrijk, an open air museum where old farmhouses from all over Flanders have been rebuilt. (part1... to be contd)

When you're young, everything appears big, the open fire, the corner bath, the scary looking black barn and Marjorie's cooking but most of all Grandad's big smile.
We will miss you greatly and although your memory started to wain through that terrible disease, our memory of you will never fade.
RIP Grandad Syd love Matt and michelle
