Dear Maureen, Martienus, and Family,

My deepest condolences on the loss of a wonderful mother, grandmother ,and great-grandmother. I never had the chance to meet your mother but, she raised a wonderful daughter and, you have all your mother's wonderful gifts to share with your children. You were so blessed to have your mother for over eighty years . I know that these will be difficult days and months ahead, but know that you now have two wonderful guardian angels watching over you-your mother and father. May God hold you and your family in the palm of his hand today, and always.

Dear Tamara, Brigid, Thomas, Maureen, Alexia and Damien, I was saddened to hear of the passing of your beloved mother Patsy. I have so many fond memories of her, and your whole family during my high school years. Your mom was always warm and welcoming, and treated me like one of the family. She was an amazing cook, had a great laugh and had a wonderful sense of humour. I am truly sorry for your loss. Sincerely Michele Malarz (Burns)
