Tina ,Elizabeth and families
So sorry to learn of your mothers ( Delores) passing. She was a fine lady, so pleasant and caring.
I only met she and and Gary in recent years, when they always got a Christmas tree from me, having a very
friendly chat at the time. During the past three years, she occasionally dropped in with a cranberry loaf or some sweets
for me, and in turn I gave her some garden veges…. we were both so appreciative of this friendship.
MY sincerest condolence, and my God Bless.
