 A wee thanks to the club and staff

Back in March last year following losing my dad, I had a plaque installed in the memorial garden. Due to various restrictions and all the stuff with Covid (I’m based in Glasgow normally), I hadn’t been able to get to see it.

Today, thanks to Matt, David and groundskeeper Willie I was able to get in and spend some time there - and wanted to call them out with a thank you - made my day. ☺️

I was in East End today with the walking and talking group. I just commented what a great idea this remembrance garden is - it’s a small private place in a very cherished public space. Delighted to hear that it provided you with a place to remember your dad Ross.

Just a small story about the garden to make you smile Ross.

About three or four years back, Dunfermline Athletic Heritage Trust put a granite plaque in the garden dedicated to the memory of Dunfermline players and a manager who died whilst in the service of the club. We invited friends and family members to the unveiling, and treated them to hospitality. One of the guests was John Watson.

Now 1970 Par and I decided to freshen up the white paint on the garden walls (1970 Par doing all the difficult high-up bits). It was cold weather and when Saturday came, the walls were still not completely dry. We had photographs taken, and warned the guests. However, John Watson being the nice guy he is, insisted on standing at the back so as to not block shorter people, and forgot the wall in the heat of the moment. It was a good jacket too.... Hope the paint came off.... He took it very well I have to say.

I`m probably going to have the plaque to my folks put up there next season. The crematorium memorial wall is getting very full and they are ramping up charges after 10 years.
