The lovely funeral service carried out by Reverend Lesley Harrison will remain long in my memory and I would like to express my grateful thanks to her from Ina’s family and friends in both the UK and Canada.

On a personal note, I would also like to express my appreciation for Jim Manishen’s information and comments about Ina’s time at Empire Sheet Metal, as well as the kind thoughts from James Alison.

Finally, thanks to all of those who were present on 23 January 2019.

Dear Ian, Duncan and Heather:
Our thoughts and prayers are with you. I will miss my conversations with Ina. We thoroughly enjoyed our many summer visits when she would come to New Brunswick. We will miss you Ina, R.I.P.

I have lovely memories of Ina about when she worked at our family business, Empire Sheet Metal. As a teen, I worked in the plant in Ina's area doing odd jobs while she managed our pipeline, setting up the complex rolling machine and making sure it was operating properly. My late father and owner Mel always had total faith in leaving everything to Ina there, since he knew she treated the equipment with great care.

The memory I have is Ina telling me in her strong Scottish brogue as I watched her work: "Some day you'll learn how to work the 'pipes'!"

We were so fond of her and share your loss.
Jim Manishen
