Our deepest sympathies and condolences to all your family with Greta’s passing. May the many wonderful memories you have shared throughout her life give you all comfort now and in the years ahead. She was such an integral part of growing up for me, and was always very kind to Ann right from the start. When we were so far away and my Mum was alone, we will never forget Greta’s thoughtfulness in having her join your family for special occasions; it meant so much to us and to my Mum. Take comfort in knowing that Greta is fondly remembered and that she made a difference in the lives of those around her. Our love and thoughts are with you all.
