Uncle Metro, Len, Ron, Elaine Terry, Richard and all the families that loved Auntie Sophie: Just wanted you to know your family is in our hearts and thoughts as you grieve the loss of your wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. We hope you find strength in each other and comfort in the many warm memories you have of her to help you through this difficult time.
