    Dear Uncle James, Jim Virdell, Aaron & Alaine

    John and I wanted to just let you know we were thinking of you all at this sad time. We were so glad that we managed over to see you all last year and had that precious time with Aunty Rita. I’ll treasure that for ever now.

    Our family also wanted you to know that they too are thinking of you and send their love as does Jean.

    Love and best wishes from us all
