  1. I was with our 105 year old aunt, Mabel, when Nell phoned about “Joes” passing. I do not drive long distances any more. I sympathise with the immediate family, but understand she was sick for an extended period of time, and the removal of pain was a blessing in disguise. May she find peace in God’s hands!
