Once Maureen and I were sneaking to feed some carrots to a bunny.( You are not suppose to feed the wildlife). We snuck past anyone that would tell on us. These carrots were going to be about a 12 foot throw. Maureen choose the underhand throw. She tossed almost straight up in the air and then the carrots landed on the roof. (Of course the roof of folks that wouldn't be to happy about us feeding bunny). We laughed and laughed, and yes we were partners in crime! It was truly a great moment shared!

My deepest sympathy toJack and family. Maureen is greatly missed. She was a lovely lady and friend. I loved her sense of humor. She made real shortbread and the best lemon bread/cake for those of us lucky enough to be invited to her home. Thoughts and prayers for all missing her.

John- Sorry for your loss. Just wanted to let you know it was so touching to hear you say you were happy to have had 55 years of wonderful memories together. I’m happy to know you have a strong support system that hopefully helps you get through this tough time. This is from a nurse.
