Karen (and family)

Aunty Sue, I have so many happy and treasured memories of growing up with you and Uncle Ian in my life – you were definitely the ‘fun’ aunt and uncle! Our times at the lakes on the boat were just the best, travelling up there in your red MG sports car with the Spinners blaring out, rounders on the field, riding up Windermere in the boat – always in the sunshine, then chicken in a basket at the pub on the way home. Happy times shared with you which are my favourite memories that I’ll never forget. I’m so sorry you are gone but you will never be forgotten and send all my love to Uncle Ian, Sara and Charlotte x

I had been in touch with susan via Facebook and we were hoping to set up a reunion with Janet as we all worked together in Burnley. I knew she was ill and I sent a message to her recently to see how she was. No response so I was so shocked to hear of her passing. She was a consummate professional and loved her family. She had a great sense of humour too. My condolences to the family. She must be very sadly missed.

I was a friend of Susan when I was a child. We shared a lot of fun moments. My sympathy goes to Ian.
