Your grandmother was such a kind and graceful woman. She was always so lovely and witty when we met her at your family events! Thinking of you all over the coming days.

Peter & Bonnie, Helen & families,
I am saddened to hear of Aunt Gwendy’s passing & the passing of your Aunt Doreen. I spent the day yesterday walking down memory lane, remembering all of the Christmas card games & Boxing Day visits to your house on Parade St. We were always warned by Dad to be on our best behavior and I can still hear Aunt Gwendy telling your Dad to stop teasing us because he was going to get us in trouble! So many wonderful & fond memories!
I am so sorry that I am unable to be there during this very difficult time but please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Rest in peace Aunt Gwendy & hugs to all of you. Michele & Stephen, Susan & David & families
