Dear Susan, My heartfelt condolences at this difficult time in your life. Your parents were such great people. I remember the wonderful birthday parties with the little movies your dad found to entertain us and the wonderful treats your mum made. May these memories make the days ahead easier for you to manage. I am in Metro if you need a friend to talk to , dont hesitate to reach out. Hugs!
