Tim and the Ford family,
I was so sorry to read your mom’s obituary. I have fond memories of the time you spent in Dunville. Your mom often asked me to babysit while she went to Bingo. I remember, when she won she would come home with hamburgers and fries for everyone. She was a lovely lady and a wonderful neighbour. Find strength in the wonderful memories. Rest in peace Mrs. Ford.

Hi Tim & Ford Family
So sorry to hear of the passing of your mom. I can certainly relate to what your going through right now and over the next few days. Please take some comfort in knowing that she fought a very courageous battle and suffered greatly over the last number of years. I remember some of the stories you have shared with me.
Although you probably don’t see it that way because we all want to hang on to them forever. Take some comfort in knowing she isn’t suffering now.
Hang onto them precious memories Brother.

May God help you and the Ford Family get through the next few days. If you need an ear to listen do not hesitate to call.

Rest in Peace Mrs Ford
God Bless You

Tim, Tanya and Emma, So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Wilson and I send our deepest sympathy. Right now it feels like there is a big hole in your heart, and it may seem like it will never fill again, It will take a long time but it eventually gets easier. You have great memories that will get you through each and every day,
When you remember funny things she said or did, have a great laugh, and cry when you remember things that made her sad. This is the way I am getting through Peggy’s passing and it seems to work for me. Love to all.

Betty, Marg, Paul, Timmy, Robbie, Corey, & Mrs. Higdon,

We were saddened to read Mrs. Ford’s obituary. I fondly remember her when she rented from us in Dunville many years ago. I found her to be a generous, kind, friendly & pleasant person. “A mother’s Love is a Blessing”. Our deepest condolences to you all.

Margaret, Betty, Paul, Tim, Rob, Corey. Daisy, Shirley and all your families, my deepest condolences to all of you. I’ve very sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. May she rest in peace.

Ford family,
There are not enough words to express how one feels after the loss of a loved one. “Mudder”, as I called her was a kind, loving, beautiful woman. She never let anything get her down. Always cracked me up with her sense of humor. I was blessed to have known her and been a part of her life. I was also blessed with being a small part of her wonderful family, who always showed their deepest love for their mother. I will miss her and I hope she now has found peace and comfort. May you all find peace and comfort in family and friends who love and care about you, may they be near or far.
Forever in my heart I will always remember her smile.
Love to the family and God bless,
