I'm sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs Winkler. I remember her at All Saints when I was just a small child. I can also remember going to their house and all I knew is that we would take a road that veered to the left off of Airport to get there. That was Dawes Rd. May God be with the Winkler family during this time of loss.
