Bob, Cathy, Anne, Brenda & Christine and families: When we were all growing up in Gander, our mothers played bridge together. Even after both families moved to St. John’s, they still loved this game and were part of a Gander group even then. Rest assured that your Mom is now sitting at a Bridge table and playing with Mom, Pearl Godden, Elsie McCarthy and anyone they can find as a fourth or maybe five more to make up two tables. Keep your memories and she will live in your hearts forever. Malcolm & Anne Goff Andrews.
Tina and family , so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. We are thinking of you at this difficult time.
