These web pages reflect the latest changes in my life. After Wilma,
my wife of nearly 40 years, died at the beginning of 2009, I thought
that I would be on my own for the rest of my life, and was not seeking
any new relationship. However, I have to my great surprise and delight
found another woman who truly cares for me, and I for her. On several
occasions while discussing the provisions of our wills Wilma and I had
talked about what might happen when either one of us died. We each hoped
that the other would not be inhibited from forming a new relationship
should the opportunity arise, and did not want the survivor to stay alone
and lonely out of misplaced respect for the dead partner. So, I know that
this new partnership is with Wilma's blessing.
My friendship with Dorothy Colwill grew deeper in the Autumn of 2009 through sharing cycle rides and home-made soup. Our relationship is rooted in our spiritual life and we feel that is the soundest possible basis. In early 2010 we realised how much we meant to each other, and decided to marry. Our wedding took place on 19th June 2010 at Cheltenham Friends Meeting House.
The picture here is of me alone because Dorothy prefers not to have pictures of herself published online.
