MESSAGES for Raymond Haworth (Ray)
It’s so sad that you have gone at this sad time in the world with no family and friends around you. Hope you are at peace wherever you are you will be sadly missed. Love to your wife Ann all my love Sharon xx
Having met Ray and Ann about 35 years ago on a caravan holiday in Lancashire, at Alec Parker’s CL campsite, we became very dear friends and used to meet up once or twice each year, around the country in our caravans. We have lovely memories of all of us travelling around together site seeing, with Ray telling us the history of many locations we visited.
One of the funniest memories was in Upton on Severn, Worcestershire, when Ann decided she wanted a ride on my late husband, Robin’s, electric bike. As we were the only ones on site, Robin held the bike, showed Ann what to do, and off she went with Ray and Robin watching. She was proudly going round and round the camping field, but as I appeared, Ray was standing with his mouth wide open, as Ann disappeared through the thick hedge, still on the bike. We laughed so much, all Ann was worried about was the bike.
Bless them, both so caring.
In 2016 I was able to stay with Ray and Ann for a few days and took Susie, my Scottie dog, and lots of old holiday photos with me. Ray spent all the time going through and through the photos, with a happy expression on his face. It was lovely see his positive reaction.
When I returned home, Ann rang to say, Ray wanted to know “where’s that dog gone”. He didn’t miss me !!!, bless him.
All happy memories
Love Vi Hitchings.

Happy memories Much Love Anne xxx|
