Sending our deepest condolences to the family, we are saddened to hear of your loss. I will always remember Iris' hearty and warm, gutteral laughter. I have always cherished this quote by the marvellous Canadian poet and writer, Anne Michaels - "love" is the key word.
'The dead leave us starving with mouths full of love.' -
Love,
Hyacinth Moodalie-Hünnemeyer and Family.
