    To the Hardy Family and Cathy Fletcher and Family,
    We grieve the loss of your mum. We met her for a short time in the home, but my mum took a great liking to her and called her, her friend. She was so saddened by her loss that I felt bad for her for crying so much. My mum said she got a smile from her and always wanted her to sit on her table so that she could make sure she ate something. We feel for your loss, and we want you to know (Cathy), that you came to the home and looked after her, fresh air, curl hair, feed her. You guys were all very nice to her. So we all pray you'll have lovely memories in your heart for your mum. Thank you for caring for her as she aged and needed help. I wish my mum had met her long time ago, but however short, she called her , her friend. 
    with love and sorrow but prayers in our heart for you all to have good memories of your mum as you grieve her loss.
    With Love
    Mary Bhamra and Sheela Lloyd 
    PS: We thank you for your letter regarding the issue at the home. Caring for the ones who are still there. Thank you Cathy.
