I wanted to write to you about my dad Frederick Bowen (fondly known as Fred ICI in the Elsinore).
A while ago he told me that people in passing whom he used to see occasionally would enquire as to where my mum was, she had died sometime ago and yet people still remembered her walking with dad.
Obviously he told them what had happened and he was so touched by people’s kind words and most of all - their care.
I am his daughter, and to all those caring passers by, the friendly shop staff and shop keepers of Whitby, all of whom used to chat with dad, I would like to say a heart felt thank you.
My dad passed away in August after a short battle with cancer and you will no longer see him.
Oh how mad he will be that he missed the 60s week!
Thank you to you all
