  • Pat Munro says:

    To Anjani’s family and friends, her death is so tragic for she was much too young to leave. I worked at Ctw. with Anjani and admired her for her steadiness, kindness and reliability doing all that shift work on Unit E…plus having a full family life which is the reason she was such a great worker. I last saw Anjani working at the Hospice Home and she was “as usual” working hard and still had time for words. Be at peace, Anjani…Pat Munro

  • anna campbell says:

    I remember the beautiful smile Anjani had when we would all attend Glenmore School functions with our kids.
    We have you all in our thoughts and prayers. Vic,Ann,Andrea and Nic Campbell
