“Because she didn’t really get it. Obviously where the book was sold and she saw him in the store, she was a bit like, ‘he’s on tour, so he’s going to be back. later?’
Kelsey continued: “So she was really confused by that, but then we talked about him every day. She asked me every day about him and obviously we had little things around. around Tom’s house, so she’ll take it as his wallet and be like, ‘Oh that’s dad’s wallet’.”
Lorraine was amazed at Kelsey’s strength and called her “unbelievable”.
