We learned the sad news that the boy's Grandad (and Genevieve's father) - Bob Richmond - died in his sleep in the early hours of December 7, 1998. Bob had had a brain tumour removed a year ago. He recovered from this - perhaps not quite 100% but was driving again. Bob and Ailsa came to the boys' christening on November 22, and Genevieve and the boys had spent the afternoon with their grandad only a couple of days before.
Here is a picture of Bob and Ailsa taken at lunch in our back yard after the christening - obviously enjoying themselves. [Photo courtesy of Frank]
Vale Bob - the boys will miss you.
