Letters: Great send off

Sooke was a great place to live and will be missed by former resident

Through you I would like to thank all the people of Shirley, Sooke and the Sooke Fine Arts Show for the amazing send off at the end of last month.

It is taking a while to finish unpacking and to find the things I need at the moment, but your support and good wishes have helped enormously.

Thank you all for the friendship through the years, particularly you special people, you know who you are, so consider yourselves well hugged.

Come and visit, you will be most welcome, but call first as I am often out exploring pathways, de-blooming broom plants, and making new friends for myself and Peanut.
