Rob: When I checked Haskett’s website today, I was sorry to hear of the death of your mother.She sounds like a most interesting person. Regardless of how long our parents are with us, it is always a wrench when they die and it brings back a flood of memory. I know you will miss her and especially your daily tea ritual. May God send you comfort and peace.
Dorothy Henderson,
Minister, Caven Presbyterian Church
