I WOULD like to say to Barbara Pointon that the recent documentary - Malcolm and Barbara: Love's Farewell - was extremely moving.

She was brave to let the cameras into her and Malcolm's lives for what was a very important subject.

I work with people who have dementia and see at first-hand how hard carers work.

The Government should make more money available for people who care for Alzheimer's sufferer's to make life that little bit more easy.

It is a hard and demanding job to look after a loved one in this way and more needs to be done.

I applaud Barbara and her family for allowing us to see her incredible journey with Malcolm.

I am sure that wherever Malcolm is now he is immensely proud of Barbara and in peace.

Well done Barbara. Let's hope that Malcolm's legacy lives on.

I want it to be a lasting legacy for everyone affected by dementia.
