This would have been your 68th birthday today. I remember celebrating your 18th birthday which was my first 50 yrs. ago today with you on the banks of Loch Lomond.
It is fitting that on Thursday this week Matthew and I will travel through to Leuchie House to be presented to HRH Princess Anne in the room that we (me, Boys and Friends) have renovated in your name. I have chosen the name Aviemore as the name after where we first met in December 1968 and later started our live together for over 45 yrs. I am sure that the guests will love what we have done to the upstairs lounge in your memory.
Some thoughts for today: –
‘I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.

‘When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do,
You mustn’t tie yourself to me with too many tears,
But be thankful we had so many years.’
You are forever in my heart Margaret
