In lieu of flowers, we request that you make a donation to Mum’s favorite charity, The Salvation Army. This was also very dear to her mother and father’s heart too. A heartfelt thank you to the wonderful doctors and nursing staff on Units 15 and 18 at the Sturgeon General Hospital and all the wonderful doctors and nurses who have cared for Mum over the years: you have all been so very kind to our mother and we really appreciate all the wonderful care that she received
