“To all the staff at Verulam House,
Thank you all so very much for all that you did for our father, Jeremy over the years of his life and particularly for your great kindness and care during the last months.
As we all know he had strong views and opinions which were managed with good humour so that he could enjoy the relationships that were developed over the years.
Thank you too for the understanding and support for the family and particularly for your sympathy and kindness that last day.
We were all very touched to see so many of you at the funeral. I’am only sorry that I didn’t have a good opportunity to talk to you very much there.
With very very many thanks to all of you for all the difference you made and all good wishes.”
