To Jamie and Jason and the rest of your family. I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with "Mrs C" and Leo at the woolen mill in Douglas many years ago. We have been exchanging Christmas cards since 1979. I stopped by her house years ago and met her son before sadly he passed. I then stopped for a nice visit a few years back and she mostly talked about you, and she showed me the old stove in the kitchen. She was happy to meet my wife as I wrote all about her in the Christmas cards. She was always a special lady to me. May she RIP with all her loved ones.
