Sad news as we say goodbye to a dear friend



It is a sad time for L'Arche Inverness as we say goodbye to our dear friend Barbara Wilson.
Barbara sadly passed away on Saturday 22nd March 2014.

Barbara had been admitted to hospital for some treatment and while it had always been our intention to welcome her back home unfortunately it was not to be the case. We are to be comforted by the fact the staff at the hospital were amazing, they looked after Barbara's every need in such a compassionate manner and welcomed family and friends at all times.

Barbara in latter days was never alone in hospital;she was surrounded by family, friends and community members day and night. Those who knew and loved her well supported her throughout the last days of her life.  

Barbara had been a member of L'Arche Inverness since 1986 and will be sadly missed by all.
Mactalla will be hosting a story telling on Tuesday 1st April at 7pm.
All those who wish to pay their respects may do so during the evening. 
The funeral will take place at the Inverness Cathedral Wednesday 2nd April at 11am. Followed by internment at Alness Cemetery at 1pm. 
A light buffet lunch will be served at Mactalla; please feel free to arrive any point after the service.  

For further information please phone main office for details.
