Annie Sugden: "Still, sometimes I find myself looking at the chair where Jacob used to sit, over there in the corner, and half expecting him to walk in and sit down. Once or twice I've even thought I've even seen him there, only for a moment. I suppose when you're used to a thing, the brain sort of fills it in for you."
