My sincere condolences to Peter, Nancy and their families. I have fond memories of visiting the farm over the years and all these many years later, receiving annual Christmas letters from Beth catching us up on the family. Beth and my Mother (Mildred Eastwood) were such good friends and I valued the retaining contact over so many years. Your parents reminded me of my own and am thinking of you at time time. Treasure all the memories, Linda Whittingham (nee Eastwood), Australia
