"My dear wife died two months ago. We knew each other for 60 years and were married for 58 of those.

"Twenty four years ago, she said God told her she had to feed the poor and we started a soup kitchen for the street people of Alberton. In a few years maybe no-one will even remember who she was except her "soupies", whose lives she brightened.

"Before she died I promised her I would keep the soup kitchen going as a sort of living memorial to her.

"I miss her terribly."
