I babysat for Mr and Mrs Greenwood in the 60’s. I thought then that she was a perfect wife and mother. She kept a beautiful home and her children were delightful. Both of the parents treated me so well. I have never forgotten them. I met up with Mr Greenwood again in the 80’s when he lived at Central Park Lodge in a room on the same floor as my aunt. I am happy to hear Mrs Greenwood has such a long life. I am sure she was a great grandmother. Fran Badali Hayos

I met Roz at Donway Place and enjoyed her company at meals in the dining room over the past two years,
In that short time I came to appreciate her as a gracious person with a friendly and welcoming demeanour
Meg – our other table mate – and I will miss our friend Roz!
