Terry and family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time.

So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. I have very fond memories of how kind she was to me as a child and your next door neighbour on Whiteway Street. 60 years is a long time but good memories live on forever. Sincere sympathy to you all.
