    Cleo was such a bright light in everyone’s lives. She was so full of life and laughter. When we worked together we’d laugh so hard we’d cry. Her family was her life, I can’t imagine the void there will now be in all of your lives. The funeral was a lovley tribute to her, she would have been very pleased. Know my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    I was on a bowling team with Cleo many, many, many, years ago. Back in the late 70’s maybe early 80’s and we always had such a good time. My fondest memory is all of us dressing up for Halloween and bowling. She was a very happy happy person. Sorry for your loss.
