Doug, on behalf of my late parents Spike & Marg our sincere condolences.

Grace was a neighbor who I met only 3 weeks ago. She was taking a stroll on the street with her walker and I decided to join her with my walker. We had a delightful conversation. I was so happy to have met her. Little did I know that we wouldn’t have another opportunity to walk together. Sincere condolences to Doug and family.

Doug and family,

I was saddened to hear of Grace’s passing, please accept my sincere condolences.

She was a wonderful grandmother to our children, Stephanie and Kimberley, and we will always remember her kind, loving ways.

Grace was never judgmental of our decisions / actions in life, and for this I am grateful.

I miss her homemade bread (the best in NL), playing cards, and general kidding around.

Please know that my thoughts are with you in this difficult time, but also know Grace is still with us, in mind and spirit.
