Family are hoping for a Christmas miracle

A STRANRAER FAMILY are hoping for a Christmas miracle - the return home of an elderly member who suffers from dementia.

Seventy-six-years-old Mrs Josephine Sullivan is in a home in Dumfries. All she wants is to be back in her home town, to be visited by her father, her brothers and other family members.

And her daughter Frances Dooley and her grand-daughter Joy Duncan are doing what they can - they have even called in a lawyer - to have her wish granted.

For they claim that Mrs Sullivan, in spite of the fact that officials say her memory has gone, knows she is in Dumfries and does not like it.

But they say the same officials deny there is a place for her in Stranraer.

And because most of her relations live in Stranraer, all find it difficult to visit, some because they are too old and others because they cannot afford the fares.
