About this memory

Elizabeth Mobbs (right), Marjorie Simms (left), Laura Muir (baby).

“Laura [my daughter] was about three months old, I was seriously ill in hospital, mother took care of her. It was a heartbreaking time because the well-being of baby was uppermost in my mind and not knowing if I would pull through.

“I never let my child have a dummy and was shocked to learn that someone gave her one.” – Evelyn Muir (née Mobbs)
