The next day Margaret went to the funeral parlour and organised her funeral and paid cash. Then got Georgie a suit.

She then went to the bank and had the account changed so that her husband could get access to her money and put the rest into a high interest account as she had told both her husband and Georgie about. She now felt relieved knowing her son was going to have a good start in life.

Margaret took Yvonne for lunch but hardly ate a thing; the chemotherapy was really taking hold now and she suddenly felt tired.”

They saw the bus on Saville Street Yvonne ran ahead and asked the driver to wait until her friend got on. Yvonne paid the fares then sat next to Margaret.

“Are you alright Margaret?

“I am now I have taken care of little Georgie.”

“Not so little now Margaret; he’s shooting up now isn’t he?

“Yes he’s almost as tall as his father now.”

“He’s going to break some hearts Margaret.”

“My only regret is; I won’t be around to see him get married.”

“Don’t worry Margaret if you write him a letter; I will give it to him on the day he gets married.”

“Would you Yvonne; I would like that very much.”

The bus stopped outside the Ridges inn they walked to the exit and got off.

As they were walking along Margaret spotted Alice coming out of Harry Newham’s shop.

“I can I have a word with you Alice please?

“I’m sorry about the other night Margaret; you know I can be a proper cow sometimes.”

“It’s alright Alice; but I need you to do me the biggest favour you have ever done in your life.”

I need the address of your friend in Huddersfield.

“I don’t think I can do that Margaret sorry.”

“I know she loves Tom you see Alice; but that is alright because you see; I’m dying and I haven’t got long left to live.”

“Oh my God I’m sorry.

“Don’t be; just give me Sandra’s address.”

 “Alice took out a note pad and a pen and wrote down the address then handed it to Margaret.

“Thank you Alice; “You have done me a huge favour and I will never forget it.”

Margaret walked away and caught up with her friend who was sitting on the wall outside of the library.”

“You okay now, we can sit for a while if you like?

Alright; could you go into Hoults for me and get me some pork sausages and some eggs please I’m going to make Georgie toad in the hole with mashed potato and carrots.

“Are you sure you’re up for doing this; I can give you a hand if you like you know.”
