To other news, and as most of you will have been made aware that the well respected and loved Pom enthusiast Sue Sanderson (Sandchize) passed away on the 28th January, after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, only a short time previous. Details of her funeral are as follows; Monday 19th February, 3:30pm Western Mill Crematorium, Ferndale Rd, Plymouth, PL2 2EP. If you are wishing to attend please make Sue’s family aware, to allow them to accommodate. The wake will be held just down the road at the Western Mill Oak Villa Sports and Social Club from 4pm. Sue requested no flowers, but if you would like donate, then please donate to a charity she held close to her heart at: www.caninecrusaders.org.uk. Sue was well known within the showing world of Poms, and the loss of another figure head within the Pom community has hit many hard, as can be witnessed by the beautiful posts on facebook. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.
Until Next Time..
