I’m leaving these pages much as they were before Chris died.

I think the page on retirement expresses his happiness during this period of life, even when over the last few years he faced ill health (philosophic and uncomplaining).  In the last year of his life he was not well enough to garden and could not enjoy wine tasting or cooking so much. But he insisted on doing the shopping and cooking and  went on enjoying his independence on his scooter to the end. He lived just long enough for the happiness at taking part in Jude and Ed’s wedding, a month before he died.

The most significant addition is to write something about Chris’s involvement in the Civil Rights movement in 1962 and 1963.
