VALE GRETEL MIDDLETON
Sadly, Gretel Middleton a junior hockey player, whose sister Prue is a member of our Tartans J1 Trojans team, passed away unexpectedly this week. Gretel was a beautiful girl who endeared herself to all who came in contact with her. While Gretel had health problems her passing was unexpected. To her family, on behalf of the Tartans Hockey Club, we express deepest sympathy and say we were privileged to have known Gretel.
Sadly Di Espie-Avantin passed away last week in Scotland after a brave battle with cancer. Hannah, her daughter, played for Tartans for 8 or 9 years, last year in the J2 Tornados. The family re-located to Scotland earlier this year to allow Di to be with her family. We wish to extend our deepest sympathy to Bernie, Di’s partner, and to Hannah.
