Frances I was so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was indeed a lovely person. May She Rest In Peace.

Thinking of you all in this time of loss and sorrow. Your mother, Violet (or Mrs. Neville as I called her) was one of the kindest, most generous souls I’ve ever had the privilege of knowing. She had a pride in her family that was a pleasure to witness. I know your hearts are heavy but may you find solace in your treasured memories.
