I think the first time I meet Barbara was when you used to come round to the house in Guest Road, which was where Di, and myself, used to live. At the time you were all attending CCAT, although I was working.

Nr.1 Guestroad, on the groundfloor I lived with Di and Di's brother . This place was only a one minute walk from the CCAT. It was a meeting place for all of us including Barbara.

I do remember collecting Barbara from her house, at the takeaway, in Histon. Di and myself used to collect her, (must have been in the Mini), and I am sure on at least one occasion even being invited into the house. I seem to remember we then went to a pub along Histon Road, (I think it was 'The Bunch Of Grapes'?), where we would meet up. (I do not remember how many times we did this though).

A couple of years later we were living in Shelford. I remember Barbara and yourself often coming round for Sunday lunches and then playing Board games and cards. Also I remember you bringing your cat (Asparagus) to stay with us. The cat travelled in a sports bag, often with his head sticking out while you rode your motorbike.

I do remember Barbara as being quiet, almost shy. She did seem to relax the longer she was away from home.

I remember Di and myself going to see her in hospital after her suicide attempt. I do not remember who contacted us to tell us that Barbara was in hospital, (I do not remember why you could not be contacted. I have it in my head that you were in London? But do not know why this would be. This was after all a long time before mobile phones).She was very pleased to see us, (her face seemed to light up when we walked into the ward). Barbara said that we were the first people to visit her, and I felt she was very lonely. We just chatted about things in general, (it did not seem appropriate to mention the obvious topic), and she cheered up a lot. )I think we saw her in hospital a couple of times before she was discharged).

我记得我第一次遇到Barbara是在Di和我在Guest路的房子里,你(Rob)常常来我们家里。那时你们都在CCAT(剑桥艺术科学学院)上课,只有我那时在工作。

在Guest路1号底楼我和Di及Di的哥哥住在一起。那里到学校走路只要一分钟。那里是大家,包括Barbara在内聚会的地方。

我记得到Barbara家,西斯顿(Histon)的外卖店去接她。Di和我常常开车去接她(我们那时开的应该是Mini).在我的记忆中至少有一次我们被邀请到她家里去。我仿佛还记得我们一起去Histon路上的酒吧(那个酒吧叫做一串葡萄?)碰头(我记不起我们有几次这样做了。)

几年后我们搬到Shelford。我记得Barbara和你常在周日午餐时到来,饭后大家一起玩棋牌游戏。我还记得你把你的猫(叫小芦笋)一起带来。小猫待在你的运动包里,在你骑摩托车的时候,它常常把小头伸到包外面。

我的记忆中Barbara很安静,几乎有些害羞。她离开家的时间越长,看起来似乎就更放松些。

我记得Di和我在她试图自杀后到医院看她。 我不记得是谁通知我们Barbara住院了。(我不记得为什么联系不上你,我印象中你当时在伦敦?但是不知道是为什么有这种印象。那个时候远远还没有手机这种东西。)她看见我们非常开心(我们走进病房时,她的脸色也亮起来了)。Barbara说我们是第一个去看她的人,那时我觉得她很孤独。我们只是泛泛地谈了些事,(当时不适合提起那个明显的话题),她开心了许多。我记得在她出院前我们去看了她几次。
