We are sorry to hear of the loss of your mother, Lorraine – we know she is in a better place now. I saw her at the beginning of December in the hall at the Pines in her wheelchair and she seemed well at that time. God bless you and keep you in your time of mourning.

Dear Jack, Leanne, Donna & Lorraine…sorry to hear about your Mum but know she loved you all very much (and the grandkids) so hope you can cherish some of the wonderful times you shared.
Can’t believe it’s been nearly 39 years since my Mum passed away . Seems the end of a family era; yet only yesterday when we all played with the Drobots and you’ll always be my cousins. With love from Australia Cath xx
