                          From Jane Edwards

          Jane wishes to thank all those members who have
          sent cards, letters of condolence and those who
          have telephoned, following the sudden death of her
          husband, Bob.

          They both enjoyed the friendship in the Society and
          meeting members at various Society events.

          Jane also thanks the Society for the donation made
          in Bob’s memory to The Okhle Village Trust in Nepal.
