Our family has yet to come to terms with the sudden loss of our parents, and our children's grandparents, in a tragic road accident. Kind, generous and unassuming, they brought us into this world and looked after us all, unfaltering, for more than 60 years. We now have to let them go, thankfully together, and with tremendous gratitude for their love, guidance and devotion.

An inquest has heard how a retired electrician died after locking himself inside his Suffolk home and setting it alight.
81 year old Donald Andrews had been involved in a dispute about electrical work carried out at the mobile home park where he lived at Stanton, near Bury St Edmunds.
The inquest heard that when firefighters broke into the property in June they found a trail of petrol soaked paper and a butane gas bottle in his lounge.
Suffolk Coroner Dr Peter Dean said Mr Andrews, had been concerned about electrical work that has been done at his home. Recording a narrative verdict, the Coroner said he was not able to conclude beyond doubt that it had been Mr Andrew's intention to take his own life.
