It is with great regret that we must announce the death of Wendy Suart on the evening of Monday 16th July, at her home and surrounded by all her children. She had been ill for some time, but suffered a rapid decline over the past couple of months, which accelerated over the last several days. Note that so far as we can tell, she was in no pain and the end was amazingly peaceful. She was an absolute legend and will be sorely missed.
The Suart family wish to recognise the amazing work of The Rosemary Foundation and MacMillan Cancer Care, whose excellent palliative care made Wendy's final days as comfortable and dignified as possible. Should you wish to support these highly worthy causes (this would be a very fitting tribute to Wendy), donations can be made via Farnham Funeral Services (England), tel +44 (0)1252 711444.
Our grateful thanks to everyone for their condolences and kind words of support.
[Phillip, Rowan, Jonno, Joanna, Peter and James.]

After many enquiries Wendy has now recorded a CD. "I've Heard That Song Before" features 46 songs from the golden era when songs were tuneful and had memorable lyrics. These tracks have been recorded at the Antiques Warehouse on a beautiful old piano and the disc would make a wonderful present for people interested in popular songs of the early 20th century. It provides an opportunity to relax - although your foot will be tapping - and to enjoy the nostalgia prompted by these tunes.
