a trip down memory lane

As an ardent G&S and D'oyly Carte fan back in the 50's and 60's, I became very nostalgic when I came across my old signed photographs and other memorabilia.
My first signed photo was from the late Alan Styler, who sadly died in 1970 from cancer. I am aware he was married to Vera Ryan and they had 3 daughters, and I was wondering what became of them all after Alans early death - it cannot have been easy, and if anyone has any news on how they fared and what they are doing now, I would appreciate hearing from them. I well remember Alans coutesy and patience in dealing with a star-struck impressionable young girl.

Vera Ryan's real name is Veronica Cross, and she lives in Devon, where she teaches voice. I don't know what the daughters are up to, but they would be around 50 years old now.
