Dear Roland, Paul, Catherine and Jonathan, I was privileged to be part of Barbara’s life for the last seven years of her life on this earth. When I first met her in 2016, she welcomed me warmly into the Leigh family. I will always cherish her (and your) acceptance, kindness and impish sense of humour – her gift to me and her legacy to her beloved children. It must be so hard for you, Paul, Jonathan and Catherine, to go on without your mum, but she has made it possible by loving you well. To Roland, I am so sorry that you have lost your beloved partner and soul spirit. From the time I met you, your commitment and love for each other, your children and your grandchildren were an inpiration. May you be carried by an abundance of love and support.
