Dear John,
I would like to convey my condolences to you on the loss of your beloved wife, Darlene. How wonderful that the two of you had all those years together and had a large, loving family to bring you joy. My memories of you go back to when you were a kid growing up on Brantdale and hanging around with my brother Gary. I ended up living back in that neighbourhood on Inverness Ave. for many years raising my 2 daughters and would sometimes meet up with your dear Mom and have delightful chats with her.
Wishing you strength and comfort.

Dear John and family,
I was heartbroken to hear about Darlene’s passing. You have my deepest sympathies at this truly awful time. Darlene was liked and loved by all who knew her. She touched so many lives and she will be greatly missed but never forgotten.
I hope you find strength and comfort in the many years of treasured memories you shared together. Reach out to friends and family who want to help in any way possible.
Darlene was taken way to soon and we have to say goodbye somehow and try to make peace with that. I will hold a place in my heart for her and find peace and comfort knowing she is safe , back in the arms of Melanie and other loved ones Once again.
Darlene was Very Special and so Loved.
She will be sorely missed. That’s a testament to a life well lived.

Dear John, Dave, Katie, Jake and Family,

Darlene and John have always been very dear family friends. They were there for all my big milestones for the past 34 years. I will always love Darlene dearly and hold a special place for her in my heart. She was taken far too soon and her passing leaves a huge emptiness for all those who loved her. I will never forget her and my wonderful memories with her. She always made time for family and friends and had a fiercely positive attitude, even when life threw her tragedy and many difficult times. May she Rest In Peace. Please know that we are there for all of you when you need us.

Grace, Fran, Erinn and Ross
