Canda and Family

I have met your mother on several occasions over the last 18 years , most recent a month or so ago. She was an engaging personality , cared for others and clearly loved her family. I remember sitting on your back deck with her and others having a good old conversation and enjoying the company.

I recently lost my mother who , like yours , was a big part of my life just like Kirtley was for you. The sense of loss fades with time but never go away , you will always have the memories of her.

Nina and I send our thoughts and condolences to you and the family

Just wanted yo let you know how much your Mom meant to me. I will always remember the trips we took to Port A in the summers of the great 70s. It was always so awesome! She always included me in those, and I appreciate that. She will be missed for sure, but now is with her savior.

Love to all of you,

You all have my utmost sympathy in the loss of your mother, grandmother and other family and friends. She was a very special friend to me for many years. We had so many great times together. One of my favorite memories is that she would give me a call about the middle of the week and say, "Do you want to do something Friday night?" So we would go up to the Point and have a drink and either eat there or choose another place. She also loved Ferraris. We had many great trips together and had talked about another cruise before she got so sick. She was very brave and kept going even when she had pain. She loved to be out and about. Ann loved all of you so much and was very proud of her family! I will always miss her.

Love to you all, Ruth
