  3. Dear Linda, Les, Ken, and Joanne,
    With great sadness I have with the loss of Aunt Muriel. She was a special individual who was
    very hard working and generous to me and my family, as was her late husband Kenneth.
    With the demands of running their greenhouse operations in good and difficult times,
    Aunt Muriel never complained and remained positive . I valued the pleasure of her trust and love when working with both
    Aunt Muriel and Uncle Ken during my teenage years… they were more like a big sister and
    brother to me. I missed them both. They are gone but not forgotten.

    With sincerest condolences,
    David

    Aunt Muriel was such a cheerful, kind and special person. I’ve always considered her a very special aunt. She had always gave loving attention to Kori and Kori always looked forward to visits with her,
    Aunty took such good care of Uncle Kenny when he was ill and she never complained. Now they will be together again after 55 years of marriage–a rarity these days,
