Aunt Maisie & Family

Our thoughts are with you all over the past two days and the coming days ahead.
There is one thing I have to say is that Uncle Simon & Aunt Maisie always welcomed us into their home. When Mom & Dad had doctors appointments or just needed a place to stay in St. John’s Aunt Maisie & Uncle Simmon’s Home was their choice many times over the years. They went all out to make anyone feel at home there. Always a cup of tea and food prepared. I think they enjoyed the company !!
Jason & Tony,
Cherish your memories & photos of your dad and know that he is now with Uncle Bill & Uncle Tom having a fine chat !!
Thinking Of You All.
