My condolences to the Pitt family. We had some good memories of Aunt Ethel; especially our visits to her while home for a vacation. Clearly she was very proud of her family and it was always nice to have a cup of tea and a chat.

I was so saddened to hear about the passing of Etlel. Many years ago, 1983 or 1984, I worked with her in the Engineering Department at Memorial University for my On-the-Job Training. She was a sweet boss and person, and I have very fond memories of her. Thanks to her, I worked at MUN for over 30 years. May God strengthen you all during this difficult time. My prayers will be for you all.
