Forever Friends. Derick Hewitson and Basil Burton

Derick Hewitson (83 years) and Basil Burton (78 years) have been great friends and work colleagues over many years, both were serving in Darlington CID before retirement.  Two weeks ago, Derick was admitted to the Richardson Hospital, Barnard Castle, where he unfortunately suffered a minor stroke.
A week later, his pal, Basil Burton who in recent years has also suffered ill health, unfortunately fell and cracked a bone in his neck. His wife, Judy shared this photograph of the inmates and friends (she has coined them “silverbacks”).  Both are apparently making good progress.
I’m sure we all send them both our very best wishes.
