Book of Condolences

Tom EadyMy Aunt Dolly was a grand lady who lived life to the fullest! She did things her way and be damned to those who disagreed. She was an independent and feisty woman and always treated myself and my family kindly. Her twin sister was my mom and was just as feisty as her. I can imagine that they were quite a pair in their younger years. My condolences and fond memories to her children, grandchildren & great- grandchildren. If you have any of that strong willed personality in you, thank Aunt dolly for that.
DinI was scrolling on Google images and found a sweet old lady who recently passed away, she looked kind. My condolences to the family and may she rest in paradise.
Carol PlumbDave and I extend our condolences to you Don, Mary Ann and to all your family members. The lovely photo of your Mum shows a woman of strong character with some mischief in her eyes too! She must have known the secret to having a long life well lived. Many good memories for all of you to cherish. Sincerely, Carol & Dave
