  • Mum really appreciated your friendship and really missed you after the times of Masses changed at St Paulinus and she didn't see you every week. Thanks for all your care and support to Mum over the years, and the wonderful bread!!

  • Awww Bless you Monica! Really missed our Church family! Your Mum was such a delight to talk to and had many stories to tell. Sundays were never the same when we lost our 9:00 oclock mass. A very kind and loving friend and will be greatly missed by many!! she certainly made an impact on my life for the good!! Anytime I called in she always showed me the photos of her beautful family!! She was very proud of you all! Thinking of you all at this sad time, but a celebration of a beautiful lady and the wonderful life she lived!!! X

Feb 2020 - a wonderful, active weekend with Mum.  Martin House quiz on the Friday evening; Marriage of Figaro at the Grand Theatre in Leeds on Saturday and then lunch with Gez at Newmiller Dam on the Sunday.  A lovely time together before the lockdown.
