Hi Marc

Wishing you all the very best as you remember your mum today. She sounds
like a brilliant woman who did her best in difficult circumstances.

I also grew up on a council estate in the 70s and know how hard life could
be.  I'm so sorry to hear social services took your sister away, that's
shocking. I really hope you do meet up with her one day.

It's unfortunate that working-class people are still treated as criminals -
especially those fighting for a fair wage and respect for the job they do.
Makes my blood boil.

Thinking of you.

All the best
