Oh Barry and John I am so saddened by your loss. Over the past few years I’ve been spending much time in Alberta as I’ve become a Grandmother.
Each time I’ve been home I’ve said “I need to stop in and see Doreen”. We shared many tales of our days travelling downtown to work.
My heart is so heavy for you two as I know you were her world.
So very sorry to hear of your loss.
Please know you are in my thoughts.
Rest now Doreen.

My deepest sympathy to the family. It seems like yesterday that we were spending time together in Milton. Doreen and Gina ironing their beautiful hair to have it straight before going out on Saturday night. Wishing the family hugs at this difficult time. Arlene and family.
