Deepest condolences to the Scibberas family. - Posted by: Suzie (Lloyd's co-worker) on: Jul 01, 2023
Hello. My name is Marlene Pomarenski, I was your mom's homecare nurse six years ago. I enjoyed your mom so much, a beautiful smile and many delightful stories. When I turned 60, I hosted a High Tea and your mom lent me a vintage hair pin that I held my facinator on to my head. A beautiful soul. - Posted by: Marlene Pomarenski (Retired home care nurse) on: Jul 01, 2023
