  • Peter Brandt says:

    My dear Walter and Ralph,
    I was saddened to hear about the passing of your Jane, wife, mother into eternity!The memories that we still have of visiting our rector’s home and family is always treasured, and of those moments we shared in Scarborough. Walter, you as our rector looked after the spiritual needs and our sister Jane, looked after everything else. In one of our hymns it says,”remembered by what you have done”, she is certainly remembered!
    May you find comfort and strength, knowing we all will meet again to a much happier reunion!
    With love and in our thoughts,
    Peter Brandt
