Leave a tribute

To Aunty Di, Kelly, Anthony, Wayne, Megan and cousins,

Aunty Di, today i remembered what a great knitter you were and how you took time to knit cardis for my kids! i also remembered how you helped sew a outfit for a school project when i was about 8yrs old and how you made awesome pavs.
You always has a smile that glowed and i will remember that whenever i think of you.
Thank you for the opportunity to share your service today.
With loving memories of many fun times and family gatherings as we grew up.
Love from Trina Markland, Grant and Kerry Richards.
