Dear Imelda, Janet and Margaret...
Sincerest sympathies from my family and myself.  I always enjoyed your mom, she was truly a lovely person and will be missed by many!

Lisa Prescott
I am saddened to hear of your loss.  I am truly sorry I was unable to attend the services.  Mel - I shall always remember decorating the Christmas tree and how your mother thought my "tinsel technique" was so amusing.  What fun we had! It is a memory that will last forever!

Ric LeBlanc
A truly fine lady with a heart of gold... she will be missed.....
