Sonia had 'a right royal send off' with Wadhurst Church packed to the rafters. Needless to say there was a huge contingent of Grannies there to say goodbye to our long standing Vice President who all of us have known for the whole of our time in the Grannies  The family did her proud with all three children and nine grandchildren contributing with readings, prayers and Mark's eulogy.

Jack, Mark, Katrina, Anneli and the grandchildren have passed on a huge thank you to all who were present plus those many Grannies who sent kind messages with such fond memories of Sonia. We will all miss her.
