Dear Sandra and family,

Your mother’s service was really beautiful and no doubt she would have loved your speech. It was poignant and funny and brought a smile to everyone.

I know that the biggest highlights of your time living in Australia was with your Skype chats with your mum.

Deepest condolences and no doubt this time gif you in Canada is very special.

Talk to you soon,
Julie Regan

Wishing you all the very best in

I have not had the pleasure of meeting your mum, but I have had the the pleasure of hearing most wonderful stories of a lady with whom you shared and laughed so much.

Dear Sandra and Family
Sending you my deepest condolences. I had the great pleasure of meeting Maureen when she visited Sandra in Australia and I remember her as being a warm, fun and friendly woman with a great sense of humour, just like her daughter. I wish I could be at the service in person, but it was lovely to see the photos of Maureen and you all in the video tribute.
Sending Love and Hugs,

Gordie and Sandra, My thoughts are with you today on the passing of your Mom. Your Mom had twinkle in her eye, a great sense of humour, a sense of adventure and lots of love to share.
You are a beautiful family and know that you are surrounded by lots of people who love you, both here and abroad!
How lucky are we to have spent so much time together growing up with you two wonderful cousins, Sandra and Gordie, and your parents, Bob and Maureen.
Keep that light shining bright! I know your Mom would want us all to remember and celebrate the good times!

Dear Sandra and Family
I am so sad and sorry to learn of Maureen’s death.
I only met her once when she visited Australia but it was enough for me to appreciate her fine personality. She showed warmth and friendliness, along with a lively sense of humour and a great interest in fun and adventure. I enjoyed her company immensely.
I deeply regret her sad departure .
With love - Lesley Mackinnon
