This is my MUM, the baby in the photograph is my daughter, Megan. My mum was born on the 17th may 1929. She was an actor, speech and drama teacher, Mum, Granny and aunt. Growing up, I was often frustrated by the fact we could go nowhere without meeting and chatting to people she knew in our home town of Ayr. I see her in myself, my children, my sisters and my nieces and nephews. She gave me confidence to think and speak. She died on the 10th of April, 2001, I miss her every day but my memories and knowledge of her still guide me. I am privileged to have been surrounded by ‘strong’ women all my life. FTP

Lynne loves being outdoors in the garden,walking in the countryside. Lynne loves her family, gathering together, eating, talking, laughing. Lynne loves giving: giving life, giving love, giving laughter … yet she doesn’t understand how much she gives, or what a gift she is.
