  6. Paula's entry in Remberme

    St Paul's cathedral are building a chapel dedicated to those who lost their lives either through catching Covid19, or because of conditions caused by the pandemic. She had dementia, and we think the forced 8 week isolation was the main reason why she gave up eating and drinking, having nothing familiar to relate to. Click on her image to see the message. The website is called REMEMBERME2020. In august 2021 her entry was on page 7 of 102 (100 per page ie over 10,000 names so far)

  7. Menorial bench

    Havant Borough Council have been commissioned to install this style of bench, on the Hayling Billy line by the bridge over the stream, hopefully by the end of February 2022. The bench at this spot is worn out and needs replacing. Towards the end of her life this was the furthest point from the house which Paula could manage to walk to - a distance of maybe 300 metres. A plaque will be put on it with these words:

    . - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    . - - - - In loving memory of
    .
    . Paola McInnes 5.1.1928 - 26.1.2021

    . - They sit beside us every day
