  3. A dearly loved Auntie whom I already miss. Eilys endless chatter and laughter, that she opened her heart and home open to me was a gift that I treasure; not to mention being a dab hand at baking! I’m so glad to have had you as my auntie and will be always grateful for your time and consideration.
    Our love, care & thoughts always to Ros & Nigel, Asha & Bernie, Kyle and Chelsie and her great grandchildren all of whom Eily was so proud of – Georgia, Eleanor, Ruby, Chelsea, Archer and Myah.
    Heavens just become a noisier place!
    Janine & Darryl.
