I am so sorry for your loss.
I knew your Mother many decades ago, but I remember her strength and capability. Iris was a pioneer of sorts - a very bright, competent and successful woman in a male dominated industry. She was the backbone of Eastern Farm Machinery. My Father relied on her totally and respected her greatly.
I hope you can find comfort in knowing Iris will not be forgotten.
With fond regards,
Lynn (Snyder) Cilles

That was a beautiful service and testament to your mom's life. She was a great person and always looked after my mom and taught her so much. Both you and your mom are very special people. You did so much for our kids when they were little and spoiled the rotten at Christmas. Don't worry you are not alone and you are an honourary Vettor and will always be a member or our family. I am sorry I could not be there to support you today. The world is so upside down now with this COVID crisis and we can't risk anyone getting sick. Take care and we will be in touch in the coming days even for a coffee and maybe video chat. Love Louisa, Angela, Mark and Mathew.
