Dear Mary Lee Deirdre and I are so sad we can’t be with you today at Hamley Bridge. She is not at all well and my nurse had to urgently fly to her family in Perth and Phil is a bit too nervous to drive at this stage. We are sending our dear fathers (Maurice Bruce and Tom) who were such friends all those years ago) from Heaven to bring a special Blessing of Love from our families to the fyour family and to welcome Josie and Gavin into Heaven for us today! Love Genevieve

I have such fond memories of Gavin and Josie, who always greeted me with genuine warmth and kindness. I am so sorry I only just learnt of your loss, and therefore missed the opportunity to share in the celebration of their life. My thoughts are with you all.
