The family would like to express their appreciation to Dr. Barry Wecker, the Extra-Mural nurses, the employees from CVCVB who provided Alice with home care for the past three years, and the nurses at the hospital who looked after Alice during her last days. Mum was provided with excellent quality of care for which we are very grateful. Thank you.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Southern Victoria Cancer Assistance Fund would be appreciated by the family.
