  2. Mavis,
    We are sorry that we can’t be there tomorrow. What an innings! Thanks for the Euka games and the handmade teddy bears you sent our children. You were amazing with the birthday cards – never missing any of our 5 birthdays each year. You are sharp as a tack to talk to, right to the end. You will be missed but never forgotten. Love Brett, Steph, Oliver, Claudia & Esther Coates

    It hurts that we can’t be there to say our final goodbye. But brings comfort to us knowing you are in no more pain and reunited with Pa. Now you both can dance the nights away. xx
