Thanks for flagging this, followthesapper. I learnt of her death while out on a club run. Wouldn't she be proud of her sons. Harris antics would amuse her no end in private.

Oh yes she would be so so proud of them.....and Harry's antics sure would make her smile and cringe at times and laugh her head off! :D
