    What a great lady! Her word was her bond. There are so many people who admired her for her strength of character, her devotion to family and her help to many.

    When I learnt of her passing from Francene I immediately expressed my regrets and stated that I will be at her funeral. Unfortunately I got dates wrong since I was already committed to another engagement from which I have been unable to disengage.

    Mignon will always remain in my mind and when my time comes I am sure to meet with her again.
    May she rest in peace.
