Sincere condolences to all family members on the passing of Floss. I remember her from my young days in Buchans. She was a sweet person. In fact my mother lived with the Pollett family for a while and spoke highly of them so many times. May memories of happy times shared together be a source of comfort at this time of great loss. God bless you.

Mom, you are at peace now. We will always remember the numerous trips we made home over the last 40 years and the many times you and Dad visited us in Edmonton. You made coming home so welcoming and comfortable for us all with cooked meals and lots of baking. Sometimes we would see a family member we hadn’t seen in years who would drop by to visit you. We will remember the many gatherings for your July birthday and receiving the special box at Christmas with cherry cake. There’s just so much to say thank you for. May you rest in peace and we love you.

Diane and Famiily.,
