We said good-bye this week to a great lady. Celia was one of the first members to join the Active Retirement Association.
Thankfully,it changed her life for the better as she had been very lonely since the untimely death of her beloved husband Gary.
Her name was first on the list for every outing, play,film, dinner,holiday,whatever. Always well "turned out" and nails beautifully painted, she made the most of every occasion and made many friends. Celia was so appreciative and never ever failed to say "thank you" to the committee at the end of each trip.
On a personal level I have to say how much I appreciated that little drop of brandy and ginger discreetly left for me as a thank you for being the founder member of the A.R.A. All I can say Celia is it was a pleasure having you along.
I hope you are enjoying your new home in Heaven. Now you can enjoy your "fag" in comfort.
May you rest in peace
Chris O'Flynn. Dec. '17
