I was sad to hear the news of the passing of Aunty Flora. I think that my last memory of your mum, was when she attend my dad’s 70th Birthday Party (Colin Read). She was happy chatting to the various Read relatives. We have been thinking of you (Maree, Peter, Bernie, Trish and Terry) at this difficult time. Take care. RIP Aunty Flora.
