It is with the deepest regret and a very heavy heart that I must announce the death of our dear friend Sheila.
Duncan and his 2 sisters were called to the hospital, as she had taken a turn for the worst and she passed away this morning. This will come as a dreadful shock to everyone, but she was much more seriously ill than was first thought when she went into hospital shortly before Christmas.
On a personal note, I am heartbroken to have lost such a warmhearted, perceptive, knowledgeable, and wickedly funny friend.
I know you will all join me in extending our deepest sympathy to Duncan and the rest of the family and I have told him that we are all thinking of them.
