Frank, Dana and Kim…. I am so sorry for your loss! Peggy was a beautiful strong woman- I am fortunate to have seen her in June when I did; she taught me to hang rosary beads in a tree to bring sun (no rain but positivity) And that it worked! You are all In my Thoughts and prayers.

Dear Kim and Dana, your Mom has often crossed my mind throughout the years while living away in Alberta. She used to cut my hair in your kitchen in the late eighties. I would skip all the way to your house. We chatted about girly things and the PH balance of different shampoos. I’ll never forget. I enjoyed spending time with her so much. I really miss her and hope to see you both when I home next for big hugs.

My deepest condolences.


Frank, Kim and Dana, we were so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. What a lovely person she was . May her soul Rest In Peace.
