I was so sorry to read of Susan's death. I first knew Norman and Susan when I was very young; perhaps the first time I met them was at their 50th wedding anniversary about 20 years ago. They were a lovely couple.

Susan and I had a visit a couple of summers ago and talked about our common Watling ancestors, and I had always intended to get back again to go through more photos and talk about her memories of the family from her childhood. I'm sorry I won't have that privileged opportunity anymore.

I am sorry that I am unable to attend the wake/funeral. Please accept my sincerest sympathy on the passing of a beautiful soul. May your mother rest peacefully.
