Dear Editor.

My sincere thanks to all the Macmillan nurses and Paul Sartori care workers who helped my beloved sister Sylvie Bevans in her final days.

Also my sincere regards to Trevor and Amanda Claire and Sarah Jane for their wonderful kindness towards their lovely mother staying over night and keeping her well attended to.

Sylvie's funeral was held on December 17 - a wonderful service, and thanks to Frank Newing and his team for performing their duties with tenderness and kindness.

Richard Simon Barnes
