I want to say a very big thank you to all of those of you who expressed your sympathy at the news of my sister’s illness and death. Your thoughts and prayers were and are of great comfort to me. Friday was overwhelmingly sad. The church was full of my sister’s friends and colleagues – so many people expressed their sorrow at her death and their admiration for her love of life, enthusiasm and tireless work in the local community as a District Councillor. She will certainly be missed not only by our family but also by many other people, most of whom are unknown to me as she lived so far away.
