Messages & Condolences

From James Hodgkins...

My sincerest condolences to Jennifer and her family. Your mother was always kind to me in what were difficult circumstances not of her making. I am sorry to read of her passing but at least she is now with my dad who I know she missed very much.

From Penny Foster Davey...

“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, so loved, so missed, so very dear.”
