My deepest condolences to the family of Ms Seyarto. She was my grade 2 teacher at Christ the King, she was also my Godmother. We lost touch many years ago but I would think of her often & with very fond memories. I still have some books & a doll that she gave to me when I was young that I have always cherished. She was such a wonderful person & amazing teacher. All of her students loved her I am grateful for having known her & treasure some wonderful memories. 💕💐

Dear Irene, Jose, Michael & Tristan
My deepest heartfelt sympathies to you and yours on the passing
of Bunny, a loving and caring cousin.
But, hopefully we find solace in knowing that your Mom & Dad
welcome her with open arms.
I still recall, although I was quite young, my trips to the Brantford
farm with Grandpa and Nana, as well as our great trip to Niagara Falls. These were very good times etched into my memory.
Again, may all of you find peace and blessings.
PS my Mom, Julie Banda, also sends her sympathies.
Chrissy, Preston & Family

I am sorry to you and your family for your loss. Miss Seyarto was my grade 4 teacher at St. Bernard’s and I adored her!!! My favourite memory would be walking around in her ‘Candy’ high heel shoes click click click down the hall while she wore my adidas runners. Same size feet in grade 4! Haha! She always had a fashion sense that all the girls dreamed of emulating when we ‘grew up’. She was lovely, cheerful, and made learning enjoyable. She is forever in my heart and I am sad to read this news! God bless!

Very very fond memories of Bunny. I will never forget Bunny taking me to the CNE for the first time. We had so much fun and much laughter was in the air when she took us on this adventure. There was determination to conquer the rides and girl talk about everything and anything. Our sincerest condolences Irena on your loss.

Dear Irene, Jose, Michael John and Tristan,
I had always held a great respect for Bunny and it had been nice to reconnect over the past few years. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend either the visitation or Celebration of Life. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers, may you find comfort in your memories at this difficult time. Take Care, God Bless Love Amanda Miller and family
