Thanks for sympathy


Lis and the family thank everyone who sent cards, letters and those who attended Archie's funeral. We have been overwhelmed by the response. 1 July 1968 turned out to be a very happy day when Archie and I arrived in Langholm to begin a new job with Buccleuch Estates and ended up staying forever in the wonderful caring community of Eskdale. Thankyou all.


Joyce, Jim, Bill and families would like to thank everyone for the lovely flowers, cards and kind messages of condolence received following the recent sad loss of Violet (Vi). Special thanks to the ambulance crew and staff at the Cumberland Infirmary, David Erskine for his guidance and support, Jean Martindale for a lovely service and all the staff at the Eskdale Hotel. Thanks also for the generous donations to Langholm Day Centre.
