A week doesn't go by when widow Bev Brock isn't sifting through 28 years of cherished memories of the love of her life.
Although their relationship dissolved a year before his death in 2006 - Peter ended up in the arms of Bev's former friend Julie Bamford - Bev's devotion endures.

'In the world we lived in, it's very rare to have 28 amazing years together. Sure I was sad, and sure I would have liked to see us into our dotage together, but life hands you some unexpected curveballs and you've just got to learn to cope with them.'
