So very sorry to learn of Aldy's passing. She and Leo were such good neighbours and friends. Growing up they felt more like family and we always enjoyed each others company. Aldy was always full of spirit, good stories and a love of nature. Many fond memories, she will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Aldy with your true love, Leo, by your side along with your much loved furry animals who passed on before you.
