Trebor at the bottom of the hill.I left Auchinairn 63.Must have been later.My mother passed away Nov 2006.Died in Stobhill aged 98.Her mind was perfect.She was jist frail.She was in OZ in 74 for a holiday.When she died one of the Brothers looked in her purse and in it was a one Dollar note that she had taken back with her.The one dollar note is now in a frame in oor Computer room.I was pleased she died as she was heading for the dreaded nursing hame.She had been in Wallacewell Quad Residential hame for about a year.She looked after hersel with a carer coming no and again.That carer I used to know as a young neighbour.A week before she died she shouted through the phone Ah still luvs ye darlin.So that was good.
