Cynthia and family

It was no secret that your mother always held a special place in
Warren ‘s and my heart.
She was a special kind, warm, gentle lady who touched both of us.
Losing a parent leaves such a hole in your heart and their age does does not matter.
I will never look at those Italian pastries, of which I can never remember the name, without thinking of Mrs B.
You now have an angel watching and walking by your side.
Our heartfelt condolences to you and your entire family.
