Once again in these horrible times it is with great sadness that I have learned that one of the best known, well loved and most successful restaurateurs on the Coast with her husband Gerry Coleman (Alberts on the Port/Mijas Playa) Izzy has today passed away form Covid in Gibraltar. I had known them virtually since they arrived on the Coast and it was a pleasure to consider them as friends. I also had the privilege to have opened Dafneys with them and the inimitable John and Jim, their partners. God Bless and RIP Izzy. My love to Gerry and ALL the family.

If I should go before the rest of you
Break not a flower nor inscribe a stone
Nor when I’m gone speak in a Sunday voice
But be the usual selves that I have known
Weep if you must
Parting is hell
But life goes on
So sing as well.
