Carolyn and Austin Hayes

Dear Neil, Cheryl, Dana and families,

My heart is broken. As you well know, Marilyn was so much more to me than just my eldest cousin. She was the pretty teenager I adored when I was just a little girl. She allowed me to play with her eye shadows and “dress up” in her wonderful high heels. (It was a very sad day when my feet grew larger than hers.) I shed many tears on her pillow after each of her summer visits to Corner Brook came to an end. Many years later, Marilyn began to fill the role of “sister” when, during a visit to my “home away from home”, we received the shocking news of Dad’s passing. She continued in this role throughout the years of Mom’s poor health. Sadly the role of “mother” became a necessary addition in July 2012. Whatever role Marilyn was playing, throughout my adult life she was above all my trusted friend and confidante whom Austin and I loved dearly. Our memories of good times and the laughter shared with her and you, Neil, will be treasured forever. Although we cannot be with you physically during this difficult week you know we will be “with you”. Love to all of you…Carolyn and Austin

Carol Watts

So sorry for your loss Neil and family, Walter and Ruth. You have a very special angel in heaven looking over you now. Embrace and find some comfort in the thought of that special gift. Talk of her often and she will truly be with you forever.

Bob Dyckson

So sorry to hear of Mrs.Watt’s passing. I was so lucky to have her in Kindergarten at Bishop Feild as my first teacher. Kindergarten is a difficult time for many but I remember how she welcomed us to her room in 1965 and gave us all such a safe and positive place as we started out school life.I am lucky to still have friends from that first class and we often talk so fondly about our early days at that wonderful school .Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

Beverley Inkpen

Neil and family; I only learned tonight of the passing of Marilyn. Pleased be assured of our prayers for you all on the loss of your loved one. I have notified our pensioners group on Marilyn death.
Marilyn is now safe in the arms of her Creator. We must thank God for the gift of memory that you will cherrish and have for her.
God Bless you all.

Sorry Neil to hear about Marilyn’s passing .My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My condolences to the family, sorry to hear of your loss. Death always causes pain and sorrow. You can gain a measure of comfort in knowing that when Jesus lost his dear friend Lazarus in death, he said, as recorded at John 11:11, “Lazarus our friend has fallen asleep, but I am traveling there to awaken him.” At John 11:43 Jesus called out at Lazarus’ tomb, “Lazarus, come out!” and Lazarus was resurrected, awaked from death. Jesus will do the same for us. At John 5:28, 29 it tells us “the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” Yes, we can look forward to seeing our loved ones again in the near future when Jesus resurrects them. The bible also tells us that it will be at a time when “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” – Revelation 21:3, 4. You can find more scriptures of comfort by going to http://www.jw.org, search “when a loved one dies.”

Sorry Neil. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in your time of need. I used to work at Supreme Court – retired 2 1/2 years ago.
