My condolences to you Keith, and to your family on the recent passing of your mom. I have fond memories of your mom and dad at the No Frills grocery store at Hamilton Rd. and Coventry Ave. They were always happy to see me as I was to see them. Sometimes, our arrival at the store was at the same time, so we would have a chat before grocery shopping.
May God continue to provide comfort to your family as you mourn her loss.
