We received the following sad news from Merv Player:
"Pat passed peacefully away yesterday after several visits to hospital from her Care Home in Graveley. I will let you have the Funeral arrangements later, in case any of her old friends may wish to attend. "
"We will welcome all to Pat’s Funeral which will be at Harwood Park Crematorium, Knebworth, on the 25th May at 11.45 . We are retiring to Number 18 (New Close, Knebworth) after the Funeral and welcome anyone who wishes to come. We decided that people can send flowers or make a Donation as they wish. The flowers and Donations to the Alzheimer’s Society (so that they can hopefully research a cure to what took Pat) to be sent to the Funeral Directors, J .J. Burgess 23, Station Road, Knebworth, Herts. SG3 6AP."
