"I was born in Birmingham, Selly Oak Hospital during the war, I was a war baby...."
"When I first went to school, the situation was not very good because there was a lot of racism by the other kids and the teachers included...'
'I hate it when people stop me from getting something done, when its not finished, and I know that's just like my Dad!'
"My Dad is spending that time which he missed with me, with my son and daughter, and giving them all that warmth, which is great to see..."
'Communication is the main thing. That’s what I taught my kids, they know how to communicate with the elders, with the small children, anyone; which is great.'
'I was my fathers eyes and ears...he wasn't deaf but the way the people used to speak to him was very loud...as a child it really hurts to see your parents treated that way...'
"I think that remembering him paint was one thing, but I think that was one of my first memories where I realised that he was my father and that he could paint and do amazing things like that."
