Dear Nancy, Debbie and families,
Jane, Gayle and I were sorry to hear about your mom's passing. We've been reliving the relationship between our families as we go through old photographs and cards in mom's house. The relationship goes back a long way - to the "Three Muskateers", Stan, Gord and Bob -- best friends in Brantford. With the passing of our two moms, it's really the end of an era.
Jane, Gayle and I have made a donation to Diabetes Canada in Helen's name.
All the best,
Ginny

We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Helen. My parents, Aut and Chris Hoggard, were great friends of Stan and Helen for many years and I remember as a child playing with Donald (although there were a few years between us) at the Perrin house on Terrace Hill Street and also our visits to them in Montreal. Many happy times were to be had. I spoke with your mom a few years ago (after your Dad passed away) and I am so glad now that we had that nice chat. Our condolences go to Nancy and Debbie and their families and our thoughts are with you at this time.

Sincerely,

Gail Evans

To my cousins Nancy and Debbie our condolences to you and your family . Please know we share with you the feelings this day has brought. I will always remember Aunt Helen most for her warm welcomes to her home. Although only a few they are for me very memorable. I am most thankful for all her wishes and prayers for my families health and happiness expressed. Her caring concern shown over the many years since my mother passed have always helped. The loss of this now is hard, but the memories of are so much appreciated.

Joe and Ginette Harber and family
