Readers will be sorry to learn of the death of Mary Gallacher at home, on 6th July, aged 62 years. The diagnosis of cancer was made on 10th May.

Mary was known to many of us as a cheery friend and guide at BCA gatherings: how she will be missed. We send our sincere condolences to Eric and his family. Also the BCA has lost Peter Sheehan who died recently after a protracted and debilitating illness. Despite his increasing handicaps, Peter enjoyed his Irish and country and western music, and he played a fair game of chess in the association in earlier years. To Marie and family we send our sincere condolences.
