    Wilf Broadbent has a very special place in my life. I never knew my grandfather (Patrick Hillan) who lived and worked in Bolton all his life and I had only 2 photos of him. The Bolton Evening News published the photo in 1999 asking if anyone knew him and the little girl he was holding. Low and behold I received a letter from Wilf and Nora Broadbent identifying the little girl and saying they knew the family. Wilf was the only person I've had contact with who actually spoke to my grandfather. He and Nora played a large part in my getting to know him better and I enjoyed my correspondence with them very much. Lynn, you are a kind and generous soul like your father and mother. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers...Our hearts go out to you ~Liz and John
