  21. Dear Neil and Jeffrey Family, Our sincere condolences on the passing of your mother. I met Mrs Jeffrey approximately three years ago when we moved to Sombra. We always seemed to be out for a walk at the same time and would cross paths. We would always stop to talk about gardening, weather and the river. When she would walk by our house she would always turn and wave. I’ll miss seeing her and our chats. She was a very kind lady and we are truly sorry for your loss.
