A Message from Dot Eynon
Thankyou for the cheque* from the photography club. Hopefully we will have a good sum to go to this worthy charity. Geoff thoroughly enjoyed the club and as he got iller he missed the people and the meetings.
The church was packed, with people standing. Thankyou also for coming and helping to give him a good send-off.
Love from Dot.
