In Loving Memory
On Friday 22nd February 2013, my mother, Joan died. I agreed to speak at her funeral and represented my brother and two sisters in doing so. As I wrote down what I wanted to say, it came to me that much of what I could speak about would make for good content for the Neighbourgood web site with its emphasis on social care. The more I thought and wrote, the more obvious it seemed that Joan incorporated principles of community care in her every day living and seemed like a natural inhabitant of the Neighbourgood. So that’s what I’m doing here writing about her and drawing inspiration from her.
