CandleI was saddened to hear that Aunty Beryl passed away. Remembering some fantastic times from my childhood of playing tennis on the courts in Manor Park, as well as watching great 80’s movies like Beaches and Steel Magnolias when she came over visiting family. Great times.
Our thoughts are with the family.
