One Elderslie resident wrote: “I miss you Donald, boy oh boy, do I!

“Still alive, taking your good advice, and keep yourself safe.

“All my love, Nan.”

One mum said she was “keeping busy and out of mischief”, while another wrote: “Hi, Pauline, I am doing okay.

“I miss you and can’t wait to see you again. Love mum.”


At Burnfoot Hall, one resident told her family “don’t worry about me too much”, while another added: “See you for a beer soon.”
