Auntie Joan was always one of the"fun" Aunts and as kids we loved it when she baby sat us.

I am sure you will all miss her lovely character and trust you will gain strength from all your good memories.

Mum was the sweetest kindest most unselfish person I have ever known. She was my best friend. She touched all who were lucky to have met her. She always saw the good in people. The empathy she felt for others was sometimes too much for her to bare. Life as we know it will a very different world. She is now with all the people whom she so desperately missed. I hear her wee laugh in my head and it makes me smile. Her beautiful smile that was so bright and always genuine. Such a beautiful soul. I will miss you mummy until we meet again love your wee girl.

To dear Cathcart family, I am so sorry to hear of your sudden loss of your mum.
I worked with her in Marks. And Spencer's for 5 years, we worked the food department and part time in the office.
She was a very special lady always had a smile, we were very close back then from 1977 to 1982.
She will be sadly missed.

To Marg's family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your mom & grandma. I worked with Marg at Marks & "Sparks" many years ago - it was a part time student job for me. I will always remember Marg, her wonderful simile and friendly personality she was such a lovely lady. Over the years any time I ever ran into her we would often have a little chat, or sometimes just say hi.
My sincerest condolences on your loss, Anne
