Our condolences Harvey. As backyard neighbours, we appreciated knowing Isobel since 2004 when we moved here, when she (and you) welcomed us to the area with a nice reception party. We'll miss her.

My condolences are with you Harvey and your family during this sad time. I have such fond memories of fun times the four of us enjoyed together with Isobel as my card partner leading the way. Isobel was a joy to know. She will most definitely be missed by so many.
