LINDA MacDOUGALL - SAD NEWS

I am very sorry to inform you that past member Linda MacDougall passed away suddenly yesterday.

Many of us will remember Linda with great fondness. She had a bubbly personality and a smile for everyone. We have missed her since she and Donald decided to move to Gullane a few years ago to be nearer to children and grandchildren.

Thoughts are with her husband Donald, her children, grandchildren and the rest of her family and friends at this very sad and difficult time.

Funeral details will be posted when known.
