    LADY ANDERSON DIED LAST NIGHT, SHE HAD FALLEN AND BROKEN HER ARM AND WAS IN HOSPITAL.

    TWESELDOWN WHIPPETS WILL BE REMEMBERED AS SHOW AND COURSING WHIPPETS.

    LADY ANDERSON REGULARLY COURSED HER DOGS UNTIL SHE COULD NO LONGER WALK FAR. SHE WAS A REAL WHIPPET PERSON, AND A DEAR FRIEND AND WILL BE MISSED BY ALL.

    How very sad. A lovely lady who I knew when I was a girl, she was always so kind and never missed having a chat to me and I thought of her as my friend. A true lady in every sense of the word.

    RIP

    A great loss to the whippet world. Lady Anderson was one of the most knowledgeable people I have ever met and it was my good luck to be benched next to her at many shows and to listen and learn.

    She gave me invaluable personal support and encouragement when I was trying to set up the South West Whippet Club in its very early days.

    A true Lady in every sense of the word.

    It was Dennis Battershall and Reena Clark and you who set it up, and it was first mooted just before the South West Hound was formed, by Pat Brown and Dennis and others. They decided not to go that way but support the SWHound. We all supported getting the SWWC started.

    Very much delayed, but would just like to say many thanks for all your kind words.

    'Gran' is still very much missed.
