Our sincerest sympathies are with you all during this difficult time. You mother was a wonderful woman, full of strength and goodness. She will be sorely missed. This beautiful lady Joy has cherished my heart for many years and I have always wanted to be like her in business. And as I set my clinic up her card fall out of one of my books. It sad to be writing this message but so blessed to be here to support you all at time, Joy kindness, compassion and spirit will live on through those she has left behind. Love you all.xx
