Please accept Olive and my condolences and sympathy. I had the opportunity to spend time with Aunt Yvonne last week and enjoyed our time together. She was looking forward to hear of the birth of her latest great grandchild. We shared of time of prayer and she expressed her hope in the life to come and that one day all her family would be with her again. Unfortunately geography and focus separate us, but we always remain family. Prayers and love,
Darrell, Olive, Stephanie and Lindsay

Eric, Wendy, Roger, and family:
So sorry to hear of Yvonne’s passing. I want to express my sincere condolences, believing that your wife/mom/nan has gone to a better place and is at peace. As I get older and deal with aging parents on a day to day basis separated by sickness (one living alone at home, the other in nursing home) I can fully appreciate your struggles and pain. However, I hope it can be a comforting time, knowing that her suffering has ended and she is now at peace.


Eric, Roger and Wendy:
So sorry to hear of Yvonne’s passing. We have lost touch over the years however I have many good memories of being neighbours on Torbay Road and before that time. My sincere condolences to you and the Percy family.

I am sorry I will not be able to attend the service or wake as I will be out of town.
