    Orla and I were classmates in Eston schools –many family remembrances with Parents and Grandparents too. Throughout the years our paths would cross in Eston and it was always a joy for me.
    Thinking of you both, Poppy and Teri and remembering you both in my prayers. Our Heavenly Father comforts those who mourn.
