I would like to express my deepest sympathy regarding the loss of Kathleen.
I enjoyed her company and wonderful sense of humour while attending chair exercises at Capt Wm Spry Center in Halifax.
She was one to give most welcome hugs and we loved to talk about her lively cat.
She had a lovely smile and will be much missed.
