Dear David

It was such a great surprise to receive the card you made in honour of our Grandfather. I am so thrilled with it and thank you so much for your kind thought and time taken to do this for me.

I live in a Retirement development and the post had arrived as I was going to lunch, so I took it with me to show some of the other residents. They all thought it was brilliant and it was displayed with my pride on the table during our lunch time.

The card will become a keepsake to be handed on, and is beautifully made to include not only his photograph, but also details of his service during WW1 and the great sacrifice he made for his country and our future. The poem is so apt and true as his grandchildren havenít forgotten him, although sadly, like so many others didnít get to know him. We will, and are making sure our next generation will continue honouring him as we Ďpass the torch on to themí The pictures of the Fusiliers at Minden give us an insight as to how men went to war centuries ago, dressed in uniforms that were so impractical compared to these days.

I shall be attending the Rememberance Service at our church on Sunday and will take the card with me to show others, with pride. I expect there will be a parade in Bury on Sunday, which must be moving to take part in, and to watch. I shall be thinking especially of our grandfather, his comrades, as well as so many others who have answered the call of duty to serve in wars past and present. I really wish I had asked our grandmother about Alfred, but I donít think she would have been forthcoming with any details as her grief remained with her until she died.

Thank you, it would be great if a tribute is made to grandfather at future Rememberance Anniversaries, so that he truly is never forgotten. I will be hoping for fine weather for you all as you march with pride and honour to the Lancashire Fuiliers memorial, and a service of Rememberance. I am only too happy for my donation to go to the funds, as you suggested in an earlier email.

I am so grateful for everything you have done to make this 100th Anniversay of the end of WW1 really special for us. Thank you so much to you and your committee members and I wish you all a great parade on Sunday.

With my very best wishes
