A touching memorial of a mother's love.
Brian Walbey: I really enjoyed seeing this.
A fine memorial and a reminder of how young many people were when they died in those days
Brian Walbey: Yes it does Bill, even among the better off which presumably this family was.
Reminds me of last week when reading to the grandchildren.
Brian Walbey: It very much has that sort of feel to it.
