    Elfrieda was like none other. In her capacity as Social Convenor at the local Mercantile Bank she looked after the every need of her superiors when they flew in on business.
    Nun plus ultra, none better was a multfold citation even with a gentle wink attached.
    She is still missed by many!
    Rest in peace, cherished little rover.

    And now one of Alfie’s favorite clients, bosses, then husband Al has also supped his last cup of spirits and has departed. One hopes that son Jason is no worse for wear and tare!
