Bernice (and Bing), With the happiest of memories of our time together at Spencer and Field, my sincere condolences.  Your school mate Linda Feaver

To Mee Ling and family, sorry for your loss.

My Deepest Sympathy and condolences to Jim Gin, your immediate and extended family members on the passing of your dear Mother. May her soul Rest In Peace.

I, along with my younger and older siblings and friends have many fond childhood memories of eating Lunch at your Parent’s Restaurant on Harvey Road, while attending at Holloway School on Long’s Hill (1971-75)

While it’s no doubt difficult at times like this when we lose a loved one, it is also comforting to know that this also gives us an opportunity to reflect on childhood memories and of a bygone era.

Please accept our sincere condolence to you and your family for the passing away of your mom – A pleasant lady always with a warm smile.
