The family is grateful for your prayers and invites you to watch the celebration of life service: CELEBRATION OF LIFE

We are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight). We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8
