To our beloved relatives and friends
Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you had a floral piece , if so, we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as every friend would say.
Perhaps you were not there at all but just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console our hearts…
We thank you so much , whatever the part…
We appreciate all the 300 plus visitors , those who sent us Perpeutal Memberships, cards, letters, flowers, email.
