  6. Dear Leander, My condolences to you and you family and my apologies for the lateness of this message, as I have only just seen this notice. I remember so well meeting your Dad, and all your family, one beautiful evening in May, ten years ago. He and your Mum, were so helpful and friendly to me in my search for details about the early black community at Maidstone. You are a wonderful family and I remember you all with deep fondness.Mary Oliver
