  3. Dear Mrs Hanson, Jenny , Ian, Will, Tom and all of the extended family thinking of you all at this sad time with the passing of Mr Hansen.
    I grew up with the memories of the Sadler and Hansen kids having so much fun together at “Eddington” and always welcomed by Mr Hansen . When I ever saw him I was greeted with a big hug and asked how are you Lynette Sadler .. even when I was married but I didn’t care about such a small detail.
    Love always to the family xxx
