"While we display the desire to walk and possess the ability to still do so, we must leave our armchairs empty and demonstrate the positive attitude of 'Can do, will do!' It is only through such perserverence that we shall endure life to its best.
Today, Sheila and I are up in Cumbria at the wedding of Debbie and Alan. Debbie is the daughter of Richard who is my sister Mary's partner. Part of the day will include being conveyed to the reception by the Ravenglass Steam Railway. I expect it to be a very emotional day and will be extremely disappointed if the wedding cake is not in tiers also.
We wish the couple all the happiness in the world and it is our fervent hope that their 'Can do, will do' attitude towards life will carry Debbie and Alan forward together in love and strength into old age. May you always love each other with the love you share today and with the passing of each dawn remain happy to still be part of each other lives." William Forde: April 18th, 2015.
