I'm so sorry to hear of Aunt Lorraine's passing. The two of you were a shining example of everlasting love. I fondly remember the days of summer when my family would visit yours on Lasse Ave, The BBQ;s and the swimming, good times when ever we got together with you guys. My thoughts are with you Uncle Arthur, God Bless!

I'm so sorry for your loss. Your mom was one of the most beautiful woman in this world, She always welcomed anyone into her home like they were her own. I will never forget sitting at the table on Sunday afternoons as she ran around serving everyone dinner and always making sure we had what we needed. When she would finally sit, her food was cold I'm sure, she would jump into any conversation not missing a beat. She loved talking about her children, and with 8 of them she was never short on content. The laughter and love was abound. I will miss her deeply she will forever be in my heart, RIP Aunt Lorraine.
