I send my sympathy to the family of Mrs Cooper. I never met her but having the family she does means she had to be a very special lady. I know its been sad to see her go through life the past few years, but she is at peace now. Remember the good memories you all have.

I’m so sorry for loss of my Nana that I did not have the opportunity to get to know better. I will miss the thought of her very very much. I’m also very sorry for my Father’s and my Uncle’s loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all in this time of grief.

With all my heart and soul your first grandchild.
