Peter Drake RIP
In the early hours of Friday 8 November my cousin Peter Drake, died. He had been in hospital for nine weeks, his wife Nena, they had been married 59 years, had spent two hours travelling to see him every day. Peter was a good man a devoted husband and a keen fisherman. He had been a Church Warden at his local church for many years. He will be missed by all who knew him.
