Gary, Liz, and family. Sorry for your loss.

To Keith, Sharon, Gary, Gail, Heather and families,

I am about as far away physically as is possible in the country here in Vancouver but so wish I was just down the street from you guys as you bid your Mom farewell on her journey to what is next for her.

I’ll never forget the many times Mom took us kids (all five of us) from Cape Breton to spend weeks during the summer at your house in Mount Pearl. My Mom, Katie, was always chomping at the bit to get to Nfld to spend time with her brother (Uncle Bee) and your Mom. Even from a very young age, your Mom and Dad’s warmth and welcoming open arms struck a chord with me, left an impression that has stayed with me ever since. They were always so happy to see us coming, even if that meant the house would be chaos for the coming weeks with all you guys and all of us. Ha! Oh, the memories!!

After many years, I was so grateful I got to visit with Aunt Vivian in 2017 during a trip to Nfld. It was like all those in between years melted away. She hadn’t changed a bit. I can still hear her voice today, that same voice that always felt like ‘home’ all those years ago.

Your Mom was a gem. She had to be one of the best Moms, ever!! She sure was the best Auntie one could ever have. Know that you are in our thoughts as you navigate this next while.

Love and Hugs,
Christine Dinham-Jones, Connor & Madison
