Dear Linda, Allan, Lisa and all of Kathy’s Family
So saddened to lean of your Mother’s passing. She was a great friend and wonderful neighbour. Enjoyed many cups of tea and card games with her and Laula. So much laughter and, yes, some tears. She was one in a million.

Sincerest sympathy and prayers to you all. May she Rest In Peace. She will never be forgotten.

Love David and Rosemary
