  56. Dear Gwenda, Rhonda and Julie

    I’ve just watched the live stream of yesterdays gathering. No-one, except perhaps the Queen, could wear hats like Mrs Reid – such a wonderful tribute to her when you choose to do like wise at her service. Seeing the photo tribute reminded me of the times she and Peggy spent ferrying their three girls to Brownies and Guides – with both of them having to admire our dodgy efforts at cooking or handcraft to earn our badges. In the latter years it was seeing the twinkle in her eyes and the clasp on her hand whenever I attended her church in Colac. She was so proud of you three and your families and would take much pleasure in relating the latest adventure.

    Deepest sympathy on the loss of your dear mum… and anchor. May the treasure trove of wonderful memories help you through these tough times. With love and special prayers Suzanne
