I was so sorry to hear about your father's death. My parents truly loved both your parents, and so many of my childhood memories include them and your wonderful home at 9 Lockwood Road. And I will never forget Karen's many kindnesses to Peg when she was on her own on Garth Road.
You all have my most sincere sympathy.
