To St Martin's Church Family. 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your love, support and prayers following the death of our Mum, Rosemary, and to all those who where able to be with us at her Requiem Mass on 9th November.

Despite the sadness of the occasion, it felt such a faith-filled and joyful celebration of her life. We have been so touched to know how much she meant to so many people, and by all the special memories and lovely things people have said about Mum, (and she would have been very humbled, surprised and quite embarrassed!).

This church family here has been such an important part of our lives since we first came in 1969. Thank you to you all for your lasting friendship and support to our family during these years. We know the ties of faith and friendship which have been made will continue well into the future and (look forward to making trips back to Ruislip!).

With our love and grateful thanks,

Heather & Adrian Rapley
