Gail, Sharon, Scott and families,
We were saddened to hear of Aunt Erma’s death on Monday and sorry that we cannot be in St. John’s to mourn her passing and celebrate her life. We (Henry, Shirley, Jennifer, Heather and Stephen) have so many memories of shared times with the family at 13 Osborne Street, Hodgewater Line and at our home in Mount Pearl. Especially fond are our memories of Christmas Eve at 13 Osborne with so many family and friends, baked ham, raisin bread, salt cod and sweets. Our favourite memory is Boxing Day bowling with family of all ages and then a meal back at 13 Osborne or our house in Mount Pearl. She was always up for a game of cards, especially cribbage, and any board games.

These and many more memories all of you will have to share and bring smiles and laughs as time passes. Sending all of you our love and support.

Henry and Shirley

So sorry for your loss. Please accept our sincere sympathy.

To all of Ermma’s family, my sincere condolences to you all. Such a lovely lady and apart of our family for such a long time. Memories of both of your parents at Ros and Dougs place on Hodgewater Line and playing cards and just having a chat are things I remember. She was blessed with a long life and the love of her children and grandchildren now she at rest. Blessings to you all as you go through the days ahead.

How wonderful to have your Mom with you for 87 years we are sorry to hear of her passing.
I think about our childhood days when our families spent so much time together camping at Terra Nova , special times at our cabins in Hodgewater line all with such fond heartwarming memories.
The one memory though Sharon when I think of your Mom is that delicious Ham that she would cook and you and I would be at your kitchen table each with a knife carving the ham off of the bone!!!
We send our love to all of your family during your time of grief.
Hugs, Craig, Brenda, Cassandra, Breanna Boland

I know this first hand Scott, after witnessing the respect, compassion and beautiful friendship you shared with my mother, Florence. Bussey. Life is fleeting, for sure. It is important that we embrace every moment to tell someone we understand and care. Today it is my turn to tell you that we are there for you. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
