On the 9th May 2011 I told the story of Betty and how Dina had brought her into my life. I lost touch with Dina for too many years to count, but I have looked for her on social networking sites several times. I assumed I could not find her as she had moved to Amsterdam. We became friends after she chose to confide in me a terrible loss. The sad premature death of her brother Simon. We met at work. I was a surveyor and I looked after St Johns Day Centre in Islington, where Dina was the manager. I never did manage to secure funding for that leaking flat roof.
