Hello Janice and extended family, i wish to offer my heartfelt condolences on your Mom's passing. So many memories came to the fore as I read June's obituary. She was such a vital part of Highgate. We could always count on her to be there for Happy Hour. And later, as she occupied a
room upstairs. Watching her decline was difficult for her, and for you, as her family as well. Janice, I think of the chats and yes, even the laughs we shared.
This COVID makes all things difficult. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I do hope you will be able to have a memorial service at some time. June would have liked that. She was always up for a good time.
To all of you, my kindest regards, and well wishes. Blessings, Tina Vandenburg. (past nurse at HG)

Dear Tom, Janice and families,
I am so sorry for your loss.
Auntie June is a huge part of any memories of our childhoods growing up on Fiddler's Green Road and we remember her with great affection. She was a great Lady.
Deepest sympathy,

Tom, Janice and family...thinking of you and sending my condolences on the passing of your Mom, "Aunt June" to me and the neighbour kids. When I think of your Mom, the first thing that comes to mind was her great sense of humour....and she grew the largest, most delicious raspberries!
