Dear Mary, Simone and John,
I found out just yesterday that your mom recently passed away. I’ve just finished looking at the video tribute and wondered, as I often do these days, where all the years have gone. Our time on Florizel Place seems so long ago, yet I remember it as if it was yeserday. I have such fond memories of your mom, most especially of her kind, placid spirit. We still have the christening shawl she lovingly knit for us when Jim and I were expecting our first child. Both our boys, as well as our nieces, nephews, grand-niece and grand-nephew, have been christened while wrapped in it. (Please God, someday we’ll have a grandchild who will be christened by wrapped in it.)
Jim joins me in offering heartfelt condolences to you and your families. May your mom’s gentle soul rest in peace.
