    We are so very sad to hear about the passing of our dear and special Auntie Fenna. She was a kind, loving and beautiful lady that we feel so blessed to have had the pleasure of having in our life. She loved and was very proud of her family and always spoke of her love for everyone. We will always treasure the kindness and love that she had and expressed to us. Her love for God shone through her daily life and heaven is a better place with her arrival. We will miss her and cherish the special times we shared with her.

    Lots of love,

    Edzo, Fran and Family
