Dear Judi,I was so sorry to hear of your family's loss. I didn't know your mother very well having visited only two or three times while on trips from Canada to Scotland or the USA. You and I met briefly through Ancestry.com; but I knew the Miller family when your father - my favourite cousin, looked after me in childhood days. Then, when he attended university he often got off the bus in Dumbarton to visit the Dow family on his way home to Alexandria. We were very close to your family in those days. I still get lonesome for them, but Australia is a long way from everything. With fond regards. Douglas Dow In Queensland, Australia

Margaret and Betty Taylor were friends since they were children. Unfortunately, they lost contact for 27 years after both leaving England once they were married. This photo was taken when Margaret visited mom for the first time in South Africa in 1996. They subsequently saw each other twice thereafter and spoke to each other once a week until mom passed away in 2010. Margaret continued her calls to dad until he passed in 2015. From the stories mom told me about when they were children - chaos reigns wherever these two best friends are. I'm forever grateful to have had the privilege of meeting Margaret. My sincerest condolences to the family she leaves behind.

Dear Judi, I'm so sorry to hear of Margaret's death. I have great admiration for your mum. She was always so stoic in the face of her many health problems and so gracious with everyone. I shall remember her with great fondness. She also had a wicked sense of humour. I'm thinking of you and all your family at this time. Carol Beck
