    Alan, Keith and Paul. So very sorry to learn of the death of your parents, Ken and Dorothy. I last saw them both in November 2019. Please accept our sincere condolences. What a lovely photo of them both - Dorothy’s cheeky smile I remember so well. Dorothy was such a loved and valued member of our Travis’s family and I will remember both Ken and Dorothy with great affection. With love from all the Richards family- Dennis, Chris, Helen and Steven. Rest in eternal peace. Xxx
