To the Cain and Deck families,
On behalf of the Robinson family, please accept my sincere condolences on Dorothy's passing. Al and Dorothy were dear friends of our late mother Ria when she was in Peterborough.
Such a lovely picture of Dorothy, so reminiscent of the smiles and laughs she always seemed to have.
Again, my condolences,

Sam , Bernard and Linda I am sorry to hear about Dorothy, please accept my condolences and my thoughts are with you all . Dorothy like all of the Cain’s had such a wonderful sense of humour and I always loved the visits I had .
It would have been a wonderful reunion up there when she arrived being greeted by all her family and by Marilyn, how lucky is that ?

Sending my love to you all , we are in Florida and won’t be able to come but I will be thinking of you.
