My mother Doreen Lillian Harris (nee Hook) popped off in 1997 (aged 60). My
father, Anthony Colin Harris (preferred to be called Colin) died December
2012 (aged 76).
Three brothers, Gary, Andrew, Lauran. Good guys, all of them, I've got used to them by now. One sister, Carmelle. She is a brilliant and flawless person, although as I'm allowing her to edit this, she'll probably alter my comments.
Brother Gary and wife Debbie (nee Whiting) have two daughters, Megan and Eleanor. Brother Andrew and ex-wife Caroline Naylor have two sons, James and Ben. Lauran is engaged to Emma and has no kids.
See the Pets page.
I also have many uncles, aunts, cousins. Bloody hundreds in fact.
