After the Easter break we were saddened to hear of Roy’s death. He had begun attending our meetings about three years ago and contributed enthusiastically.
Then illness took its toll and he was no longer able to come.
Knowing how much Roy enjoyed poetry his family asked if one of us would be willing to read a poem at his funeral. This invitation was gladly taken up. Nola Turner and Ruth Smith attended Roy’s funeral and Ruth read Christina Rossetti’s poem, ‘Let Me Go.’ Roy’s sister-in-law, Caroline, conveyed the family’s thanks.
