Even when Ann & I go into Knaresborough where we lived from 1969 to 2005 we very rarely see anyone we know.
We did bump into a couple in Aldi Harrogate who we have not seen for years. They are Hebburn folk Alan & Margaret Richardson. Alanís parents lived in the Marion Drive estate 3 doors from my parents.
Of @ 15 couples that we knew from 1980 - 2005. There are 8 people now deceased. Others have split up, some moved away due to work etc.. The biggest shock is those that have died, 6 cancer and 2 took their own lives and all were 10 years younger than us.
Enjoy you visit to the Iona. Ann & I will be in the South of France cycling.
