Android : Never stop thanking your parents for all they have sacrificed for you. I would not be the person I am today if it wasn’t for my Mum.

I love you, Mum ❤️

Android : All my Mum ever wanted was to spend time with her family, make everyone smile and make happy memories – she always put everyone else first.

There are no amount of words to explain how much I will miss her.

Android : Mum came to as many of my events as she could, listening to my public lectures, helping to promote my books, even going fossil hunting and would race to tell all of her friends when I was on TV & Radio. She was excited to meet my palaeontology friends & hear of their adventures.

Android : Everything I have ever achieved I put down to my Mum. She has been the biggest supporter of my career, sacrificing so much and encouraging me at every step along the way, from my dino-mad childhood to my career today.

Android : This is the most excruciatingly painful thing I have ever had to write.

Yesterday my Mum passed away due to complications of a severe stroke and COVID-19. She was so brave and fought so hard.

I am beyond devastated. There are no words.

Android : Dr Dean Lomax Hi Dean, I did something with kids at the Fossil Festival in Lyme Regis a few years back along similar lines, turning back the pages of a book. It is really tricky for kids to understand, especially the time-scale involved.

If that isn’t enough, you can listen to Ray’s animated song that helps you (and the kids) learn their geologic ages! youtube.com/watch?v=TqKEyH…
