Dear Mary, Laurel, Patty and Rick,
We are very sorry to learn of your Mother’s passing. Your Mother was small in stature but big in heart. Many memories of Glen Gannon and Stag Hill come flooding back.

Your Mom was such a hard worker. Always caring deeply about her family. Passionate about nursing and especially passionate about travel. We had countless discussions about far away lands. As well as many laughs. She had a great sense of humour.

Our sincere condolences for your loss. Please know we hold you close in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Laurel, Mary, Patty and Rick, my deepest sympathies on the passing of your mother. I have and will always have cherished memories of your mom growing up on Glen Gannon Dr, whether it be the times I visited Rick (which was almost everyday and especially on Friday nights when I would come over for "homemade pizza nights and monopoly"). Your mom always welcomed me with open arms and a warm heart even when Rick and I would make a mess of her kitchen. I loved her laugh and it always made me happy when I could really get her laughing! She was my "second Mom" growing up. My heart is sad hearing this news but I know my memories of Mrs. McGuigan will surely mend it, in time! All my love, John Braybrook (8 Glen Gannon Dr).
