Dear McLauchlan families, dear cousins.
We are so saddened to hear of Gabrielle's death. We have wonderful memories of Gabrielle in Belgium when we met for lunch, as you do, one day on a March school trip in Brussels, and then years later staying with Gabrielle in Antwerp in July 2008 when visiting Vimy Ridge and Doreen's uncle's grave outside Antwerp. She was a generous host to us at her home in Wgtn. We would love to be with you at this time. Nevertheless the family remain in our prayer and we send our love across the miles. Eternal rest grant to Gabrielle O Lord and may perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace.
