I was sorry to hear about Auntie Bea. I had lost touch with her the last few years. I had visited her and Uncle Bill both in Toronto and Winnipeg many times. She did have a quirky giggle and a wink in her eye. Whenever I visited we always went shopping, even though her closets were full. She loved her jewelry. She would drive us in her little car at “warp speed” but we always got there in one piece. We talked a lot about family and all her grandchildren and her great grandkids. I did not know about Danny. I remember him as a little boy in Toronto running into the dining room table at full speed. When I would return home ,Auntie Bea would always give me one of her many elephants as a memento.I know how much she missed Uncle Bill and it is comforting to know that they are together again. May they Rest In Peace. God Bless them, Dianna and Brenda and your families.
Love Pat Binnington. ...neice

So many memories .. the sell of your soft skin, your little chuckle or how you said " Anythink" instead of " Anything" .. or our shopping trips, you would buy me something and you'd always tell me "Don't tell your mother" and then give that cute lil chuckle.Well all those are just memories now, but memories I will cherish and carry in my heart, and they make me do the lil chuckle now . You any words can describe my love for you, I love you deeply , my beautiful Nana .. may you rest in sweet paradise beautiful xoxo ❤❤
