  4. Kath, from the moment you arrived at Dalkeith gardens, I knew we were going to be great friends. You are one of the toughest people I have ever met and also one of the funniest. I loved listening to your stories about your family and your days on the farm. You were a very special lady Kath, and will be deeply missed. I will miss seeing you each day and I’ll also miss my chats with Noel and Michelle.
    Sending your family so much love. Thank you for the memories xx
