I met Anka when she came to Willowgrove where my Mum lives. She was always warm and friendly and had a smile for me. I know I will miss her, as will the other residents and staff.

Dear John, Nick and Steve,
I am so deeply saddened by your loss, your mom was a strong and courageous woman whom I admired greatly. Fiercely determined and resilient, she always carried herself with an elegant, quiet and regal dignity. I remember her laugh, her soup with carrots, her unwavering and undeterred support, her love and pride of family. I fondly carry your mom and dad in my heart, always.

My condolences about your loss. If your Mom gave you your sense of humour, she must have led a long, fulfilling life.
Ray and the Leon/ Francisci families.
