She must have been one heck of a lady to put up with Singe, who was a quite extra ordinary person.

Listen out, listen out, there will be one devilish party going on in that great tank park upstairs.

RiP Mrs Erika Powell

Hi Astrid
Please accept our deepest sympathy with the passing of your mum. We know she has been ill for some years and you and Singe were devoted carers.
She is now at rest and they are once again together. Our prayers and thought are with you all.
Mick & Marion xx
