Ashley, your mother and I were 'holiday friends' at Westminster. We sat together at Easter and Christmas services several times over the last few years. She had such a generous and lovely spirit. I am so sorry for your loss.

Momma. My heart is broken. The only solace I find is knowing you are at peace in Heaven with Granny and Grandad. I will forever love and miss you. You lived a fantastic life and touched so many people in such a positive way. I'd give anything to have one more moment with you. My love always.

Dearest Nancy, you were much loved by all of us whose lives you touched. Rest in peace now with Cecil and Lucy as we cry tears for ourselves and the vacancy in our hearts. Much love, Matthew in Lagos, Nigeria
