Thinking of you at this difficult time. Our deepest condolences to all the family. Love Bob, Darlene and Nash
What a wonderful lady and sister-in-law!
Some of mom’s and dad’s greatest memories were visiting your mom and dad in Elliott Lake. Commenting always on your mom’s wonderful cooking. When all the families got together for card playing the laughter was contagious!
We know mom is sending all her love to each of you at this time. Take care of each other.

I am saddened to hear the news of your mother's passing. She tolerated the many times Sharon and I played " The Monkees " records full blast in her basement after school without ever complaining. Please accept my deep sympathy for the family.
