As June 30 approaches and members of the Patten family pack to leave Hong Kong, much is written and reported about the Governor. So far I have not seen one word of praise for the wonderful work done by Lavender Patten in her role as wife, mother, counsellor and supporter of numerous charities.

I think Hong Kong should go on record to show its appreciation to this lovely lady who seems to appear at all sorts of events, keeping a low profile but giving tremendous support to her husband and the community as a whole.
