Sincerest sympathy to my dear cousin Stephen, wife Debbie, daughters Stephanie, Natalie.and of course to your mother-in-law Beverley. The passing of Gornall who was such an important part of your daily life is a sad loss to bear. I only met your fsther-in-law a few times but he seemed a genuinely good person and I know through Stephen how close knit he was to the Biffis family.
I’m hope I I can attend in person but if not, please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Love, Cousin Dolly

So sorry for your loss Beverley and Debbie, Stephen, Natalie, Stephanie and the rest of your family. My dad's favourite memory of Mr. Jones was meeting him at Holy Name's lottery system night. He says that Mr. Jones was very chatty and excited when waiting to hear if Natalie's name would be called. He was explaining how his other granddaughter, Stephanie, was already attending the school and loving it. Then when Natalie's name was called he was so excited! He was one of a kind and he will be missed
