Sorry for the loss of your mother, Rhonda and Nancy. We have many memories of when you lived across the road. We planned to come to the service today but with the weather did not feel it was good to bring Mother out and I wasn't feeling well. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.
