  32. So sorry to hear this news.
    Thinking of you Stuart, Stephen and Janelle, and extended family, at this sad time.
    Lesley (Mrs Trigg) was the best ‘Babysitter’, and friend anyone could ask for.
    She supported John and I, from 1978 for many years, when we purchased the Camera Shop. Fiona, Sonia and Adam had a second home (and Mum) at Mrs Trigg’s), for many years, to allow me to support John in the Camera business.
    She had a heart of gold.
