We would like to thank everyone for their tremendous support over the past few weeks. All the wonderful letters, emails, flowers, paintings, and posies left by children at the gate; we were so thankful and touched by them all. My mother always loved receiving messages from all over the world, and Ditchling held a special place in her heart.
She would have been thrilled and touched that so many people paid their respects on the day of her funeral and the worldwide media coverage was exceptional.
It means so much to us to see my mother’s legacy living on. We are sure her music will endure forever but most importantly, we hope that people will continue to support those charities that she cared about so much.
