She also celebrated Easter with an Instagram post showing her in the hospital wearing festive-themed socks. On March 19, the actress continued to post from the hospital, paying tribute to her late father, Richard Beckinsale, who died in 1979, and her stepfather, Roy Battersby, who died at the age of 87 on January 10.

And for looking after our dogs when we can’t , and lead us to remember happy things when we can’t. And turn up when we are sick and sit with us . . And send balloons and check in and pull us out of wells with love.
