Pete and Linda and family,
Your sorrow is felt by others who have lost loved ones on or near a family holiday, we know all too well. The comfort is knowing they are with others who have departed and they are in paradise walking with God. May your faith and loving memories carry you through these next few days and then the sweet sweet memories of laughter bring joy in the years to come. In deepest sympathy, Dave and Maureen
