  9. My heart goes out to you all. Mavis came into my life thirty years ago when Jackie and Jeff were married. She became a friend that was always there when needed. We shared many special family dinners together, exchanged birthday wishes, shared a phone call when either of us not up to par and would share an afternoon cup of tea or lunch together. I will deeply miss her.

  10. My thoughts are with you all. Mavis came into my life thirty years ago when Jackie and Jeff were married. She became a wonderful friend who was always there when needed. We shared many family dinners together, exchanged birthday wishes and phoned each other when we knew the other was not up to par. I wish we had had more lunches and afternoon teas together; they always left me feeling better. I will miss Mavis deeply.

  15. Sending you all my heartfelt condolences during this very difficult time. I have many fond childhood memories being at the Kerr’s family home with my dear friend, Rhonda. Both Mr. & Mrs. Kerr always made me feel welcome and cared for; I also remember that Mrs. Kerr, always had a kind smile and a gentleness about her; she was also the influencer in my watching Coronation Street in my youth. Farewell Mrs. Kerr, with much love and respect.
