SIR - My husband Pete Clews was diagnosed with inoperable cancer of the bowel, liver, kidneys and lung on July 1. Sadly he passed away on September 10.

Pete wanted to die at home.

I cannot praise the team we had looking after him enough. The district nurses came each day and the Twilights in the evenings. Our GP visited whenever he could.

The Isabel Hospice gave him hospice at home help. They were there to help and support whenever I needed it.

My Pete has always helped others throughout his life.

He joined Rob McPhee & Co when they formed the Comet Rangers Football Club. We had great times with the boys and, back in the 70s, our Jack Russell was their mascot. He would come out in his little red and black jumper and guard the footballs.

Pete worked tirelessly around our estate trying to build a community spirit. He was always forthright and gave an honest opinion.

So many folk loved him. He was my best friend and my soulmate. I will miss him dreadfully, but will always be grateful to the wonderful nurses who became our friends.

I would like to thank everyone for all the beautiful cards and donations. Some are still arriving.

Mym Clews,

Oak Tree Close, Hatfield.
