MARJORIE HOLMES OBITUARY

~ The Times, Saturday 17th March, 2012 ~

Saturday's edition for March 17

Skilled obit editor's choice of rare photo of maman actually at the easel, and an endearingly soppy one with dog Sam.

Bombarded yesterday with messages from the UK by devotees of mum who had found the obit. They all expressed themselves moved and impressed by Bishop Geoffrey's words and one even said she was crying over the kitchen table (where she and my mother had enjoyed many a cuppa). So, bravo the Bishop.

Bravo, too, to Jim Potts' admirable and kind reference in his CorfuBlues slot.
