Tattersall family
Karen & I express our heartfelt sympathy over the passing of Ann a loving and caring wife and mother. Growing up on Abington Drive, it provided us with many fond memories that will never be forgotten. I remember the evenings when all the familes would be outside trading family stories while the kids played; I also remember the pickup football games in the streets, the pickup basketball games in your driveway, or playing Four Square in your driveway. The families may have change on Abington but the memories will live forever. Our prayers go out to you and your family at this time

I read today in the TU, that your mom passed away. Sometimes it seems as though that our parents will live forever, but when they do pass, there is an emptiness that one cannot describe. Please accept our sympathy and know you and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers.
