To the Peterson Family,

It is with sadness that I hear about the passing of your family matriarch dear beloved "Lena". From the McLean Family in Ottawa, we extend our sincerest condolences in your loss. Losses are always difficult and more so at this special time of year.

When on holidays in Birch Grove and when Lena was available to attend the local bingo hall, we had a great time making many wonderful memories. She told me that she baby sat me when I was a tiny child. I have a photo of the both of us which I shall try and locate and hopefully include it in this memorial page.

As comforting biblical words, I would like to leave a reference to Psalm 23 and 121. Matthew 5:4 reads: "Blessed are those who mourn, For they will be comforted."

It is with great sadness that I learned of Lena’s passing. As a child I enjoyed when her and her family came to Guysborough for summer holidays. My best wishes and condolences to the family.
