First our sincere heartfelt condolences to you all.
Knowing your Mum was a great privilege and a pleasure. Her company was so warm, practical and funny, a delight to visit her every time.
Lastly a huge Thank You for her devoted care and friendship that she provided to Margaret. With out her companionship she gave Margie we are sure that her transition to the Village and life in general would have been more difficult.
A gracious lady we will miss.
