Book of Condolences
We were neighbours and friends when she lived in Manchester in the mid nineties, and had stayed in occasional contact since. She was kind, clever, loyal, and a good friend. I will miss her. My sincere condolences to her family, friends, and all who knew her.
I will miss her a lot.
