Daphne: So sorry to hear that your Mom passed. The loss of a parent, no matter what their age, is always devastating. In time, when grief subsides, and memories take hold, you will see that your Mom is always with you. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and yours.

Daphne, Janet and families you were blessed to have your mom for so many years. May all of your wonderful memories brighten your days, and comfort you.
I am away, and sending my deepest sympathy.

Libby and family. I’m just learning of your mother’s passing. She and our mother Muriel Long were life long friends since kindergarten. Our mother passed away I’m Feb and up until her final days, spoke dearly of your mother.
Thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Very sorry for your loss. I hope you have many wonderful memories which will help you through this difficult time.

She was such a lovely lady and second Mum to Penny. May she rest in peace and be reunited with Ches.

To all my dear cousins, the lovely Moore sisters, I extend my love and heartfelt condolences. I feel so blessed to have finally met my dear Aunt Barbara two summers ago when I visited St. John’s for the first time. Barbara was so gracious and sweet, and I loved that she shared pictures and stories of my dad, Graham, who we lost many years ago. I am thinking of all of you.

To Sarah (and Ted and all Sarah’s sisters),
Mrs. Moore was a lovely woman, I remember her well when we visited on Pinebud. How blessed to be surrounded by all her daughters and for you all to have each other now when you need each other most,


Suja and Varghese extend to Libby and Geoff our heartfelt condolences . May Barbara’s soul Rest in
