We were shopping for an outfit for the forthcoming ‘daddy-daughter’ dance at her school and blue was her favourite colour.

We bought the cute little outfit but life was pretty hectic so we decided to find shoes another day.

London did gymnastics four hours a day, four days a week. There was even talk of her competing at the Olympics one day.

She was also a good student, getting As in every subject.

But what London was best at was making people happy.

And she especially loved older people.

‘Aren’t they cute, Mum?’ she’d say, if she saw an elderly couple in the shops.
