Sadly, Rita suffered a stroke while Harry was in hospital, and spent some time in a Swanage nursing home.
It was a terrible day for her there, when she received the news of Harry's passing.
Her son arranged for her move to sheltered housing, as she could no longer manage in her Poole flat.
Her address:- Flat 34 Belmont Court, Glen Road, Poole BH14 0HF - Main Tel. No. 01202 736832
Dicky spoke with Rita - she has not recovered any use of her right arm and leg, so is chairbound and pretty fed up
She can take incoming calls on her mobile, but cannot dial out - Email Dicky for her number if you wish.

Harry and Rita, looking very happy together.
