Don,Wayne,Marion and Families: I was saddened to learn just today of your mom’s passing and wish to extend my sincere condolences. How fondly I remember your parents allowing me to share many fine meals at your house when I was a boarder at the School on the Hill. Also how she enjoyed me driving her to her favorite spots in the old 55 Dodge. and I was so honoured when she asked me to compose a tribute to your Dad for insertion in the Teachers’ magazine. I am sure you all have fond memories to remember her by which I hope will serve to ease the pain of her passing. Florence joins me in extending our deepest sympathy.

Wayne, Don, Marian and Families, Sorry to hear of your mothet’s passing . A long life means you had her longer, therefore you will miss her more. Also she got to meet grandchildren and great – grandchildren, leaving more to mourn her. A wonderful lady, who was so “with it “, even in later years. We met her a few years back in a mall, and couldn’t believe she would know us. I can count the number of times we had actually seen her, so that was amazing. That is another gift you all had , a clear mind . We will keep you in our prayers, and see you when we get home .

Marian and family:

Sending condolences on the loss of your mother.
May God bless you at this difficult.
