    Dear Craig and Ian,
    I am saddened to hear of your Mum’s passing.
    When I moved into the street, Stan and your Mum were the first to welcome me. And that was the start of our friendship. We often saw each other sharing news, memories or stories, with a great deal of laughter too. Your Mum will be missed.
    My sincere condolences go to you both.
