Violet Rickards

Here is an article from the fall magazine of the National Farmers Union.  It is about my beloved grandmother Violet.  She is photographed here in a wheel chair not too long before she died, as I will always remember her, fighting for the farms and the land.

She would frequently write to the news paper and at the end of her letters say: “people are important”.  I know that she was important, and how fortunate I was to have won the grandma draw.  She remains a strong figure and presence in my daily life.   I miss the touch of her hand and her support.
