Comments about this page

I was just browsing through the site and what a surprise, there in the picture is my late mother-in-law Gertie Burgess. I remember her belonging to a group, but never really knew who they were. Often we would say would you like to come over tomorrow Nan, and she would reply no sorry I am out with the group at such and such a place. She had a beautiful voice and I can clearly remember her singing at my wedding, she sang 'Danny Boy' plus others but that one will always stay with me. Whenever I hear it I think of her.
