  • 1st cousin to Mickey, June, Betty, Norman and Peggy Farmer. So very proud of you. Your mum and dad (Vi and Ernest) were the most fabulous people. Kind, gentle and loving. They loved your cousins very much and they helped a bit to fill the gap after you had gone. I wear your mum's engagement ring with great pride and love. You are gone, but you have not been forgotten. Forever in our hearts. Julie Carpenter (daughter to June)
