PART of a home in Steep will be forever Young following a widow’s touching tribute to her late husband.

Diddy Young gave the staff at Steep House an embroidered picture of Tulips from Amsterdam for the care they gave to her husband, Ernest.

The pair met on a blind date in the Dutch city in 1965 with Ernest’s fondest memories being getting married, starting a family and having meals with them around the table.

He used to love walking up the stairs and seeing the back of his wife’s head while she at her sewing machine.

Diddy became a daily visitor when Ernest became a resident. The embroidery she made was for her late sister but she decided to give it to Steep House, along with an engraved plaque that reads: ‘In loving memory of Ernest Gordon Young 1932–2023 With Gratitude To Steep House’.

There is also a message on the back from Diddy and her daughter Michele, saying ‘Death leaves a heartache no-one can heal, Love leaves a memory no-one can steal.’
