    Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time. We have very fond memories of Aunt Vi, a very kind person and generous in spirit. Roger in particular has very special memories of staying with Auntie Vi and Uncle Jack when visiting Victoria as a kid with his sisters. There was always something interesting happening, whether it be games or gerbils. A lovely person who will be missed. Roger, Anne, Peter and Kimberley Anastasiou.
