It is with great sadness that I extend my sympathy to your whole family. For someone who has journeyed so long with the family and was there as so many were born, grew up, married and had children of their own, I am certain that she was a that constant ever-present mother, grandmother figure that everyone knew and loved. Her loss will be sorely missed. May she now enjoy the promises that were made to her at her baptism, and may the memories that all of you hold deep in your hearts comfort you. My deepest sympathy and condolences.
