To all of Mary’s family, my sympathies to you all, a good long life so very well lived. Memories go way back to Otautau days, the Nicolson and Sproat families - 3 girls in each. Latterly I used to catch up with Mary in the Op shop, always pleased to have a chat.
Each will have special memories of a special lady. Warmest regards.
