Date of Interview

14th November 2021

“Hi Carlo, I have listened to the Back-Chat and really enjoyed listening to it. I was surprised how relaxing it sounded, and as you say reflected a gentle chat between cousins”

Suzanne Wright (1st December 2021)

Suzanne is a happy and contented person which is a testament to her strength in life as she has certainly had some ups and downs.

Suzanne bravely told me about the death of her husband Michael and the final moments when his life support machines were turned off. 

We also chat about her newspaper dating, schools, Christmases and childhood holidays and murder mysteries. It was a surprise to find out who her favourite royal is and her views on how the world is treating him.
