Old running chums. We use to run around together, Pat mostly in early '50s and the Audrey and a friend Maurene Justis in late '50s.
Old school friends from Bourne and Newnham
I am a 91 yr old Canadian veteran WWII who had the privilege of knowing Miss Webb and her family who resided at 12 Acacia Ave. They have been remembered fondly and thought of daily for their kindness and generosity which regretfully, was never communicated so many years ago; for this, I remain greatly burdened with guilt and sadness. It would mean the world if some relative, friend, or acquaintance could let me know that my deepest apology and sincerest thank you was finally received before my passing. I simply was unable to communicate my feelings at the time and have lived in the deepest regret.
