My sincere condolences Maurice and family.

I have fond memories of you leading Catherine into Sunday service at St Christopher’s. She was always beautifully dressed and wearing her lovely hat. She inspired me to start wearing a hat to Church (at Easter). She has been missed these last couple of years.

Take comfort in the memories shared and knowledge that you will meet again and may she Rest In Peace and rise in greater glory.

My deepest of sympathies on the loss of such a beautiful lady! With time May your memories comfort you .

I think of you grandmother every time I put down my purse. She once told me that a purse on the floor would always be empty. My purse is never on the floor and now is always full. That was great advice.
