Thoughts

So sorry to hear that cousin Peter had died. Happy memories of holidays at Glusburn Green with Uncle Billy and Auntie Nora together with my mother and sister Pamela. We did keep in touch by phone and exchanging cards and a cheque for birthdays. I always admired Peter for his quiet calmness which stood him in good stead in his teaching career. Our thoughts are with the family. Regards Michael and Pat Spencer

I worked with your father at St. James’ school and we always used to call him (unknown to him Frank and your mum Betty) after the television programme Some Mothers Do Have Em. I wish now that I could have told him because he had a wicked sense of humour and I am sure he would have appreciated it. He was a warm and loving man that cared for all humanity and it was a privilege to know him. Janet Sowerby.

Dear Philip and Richard, I thoroughly enjoyed looking at these photos and seeing some familiar family faces. What struck me was how much your father achieved and what a full life he led, truly a life well lived. Attending Uncle Peter’s school in Ripon was a wonderful experience - being able to proudly confess that I was, in fact, the head teacher’s niece resulted in a kind of popularity that I’d never before experienced as a somewhat shy and awkward child. Fond memories of a charming uncle who’s mischievous smile will never be forgotten x
