Dear Peter, Elizabeth and Gill,
I am so sorry to just now learn about your mom's passing. What wonderful memories we all had and what fun she always made possible at your Gwen Road home ~ I had to track down bubbler Christmas ornaments a few years ago as they reminded me of the wonderful ones that I always admired as a child on your parent's tree. My love and condolences to each of you ~ your cousin, Barbara
