So many fond memories of you Audrey, 100 Barnes Street was a proper family home, full of people and all of us made to feel welcome, funny things to remember but I always remember the sock box with everyone’s socks in it, the barbecue beef super noodles for tea, Andy being in forts arms and you not best pleased about it, the phone box across from forts, where we always joked that we would get it decorated for you because you were always there, or and this is for you only Audrey, you trumping , I thought it was amazing, you didn’t care, I now know that’s because you were surrounding by a loving accepting family, and that’s what I took from being at your house, nothing matters as long as you have love when your at home , and you gave that endlessly, I am happy that I was part of that family.
