The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Keith Jackson

My husband was always known as Keith. When he dies we were ten weeks short of our Golden Wedding Anniversary.

In the last few years of his life he suffered from dementia but actually died of a chest complaint.

My happiest memories are spending two separate weeks on the Norfolk Broads for about ten years. He was at home on the boat and had an incredible knowledge of birds.

He also liked a flutter on the horses, spending a bit more than wise.

He had the annoying habit if we went for a walk that he would be twenty yards in front of me.

I set up a RNLI Forever by the Sea fund in memory of my husband Keith.
