Roberta - Bobbie

We have just returned home from Scotland and the Lake District to discover that our very dear friend, Bobbie, has died. It was not unexpected, she has been bravely fighting cancer for the past 3 years.
We shall both really miss her friendship, the twinkle in her eye, and her ready smile. Whatever she did was always accompanied by singing, whether preparing a meal, working in the garden, and in fact doing any task.
Our thoughts are with her husband. 
Rest in peace dear Bobbie.
