Eric recently shared with the Arcare Brighton Community how he met the love of his life, Joan.
by Eric Margetts
Joan and I met in 1950 through work. After attending a work conference in Sydney, we caught up for dinner and a dance and love blossomed from there. I lived in Melbourne and Joan in Sydney, so communication was via letters. I would receive letters weekly and Joan would await hers eagerly.
In 1952 we were married. We settled in Melbourne and had two children. I have wonderful memories of my life spent with Joan, till this day I have every letter she wrote to me and will at times read and reminisce on the times gone by.
Joan was my soulmate and the love of my life.
