I've always had fond memories of Auntie Jean. She was always very kind to the Wallace nieces and nephews. She made the most amazing Barbie clothes ever! And I remember each piece she made, from ballgowns to fur coats....all the girls in the neighbourhood wanted them!
She lived another lifetime without her beloved husband Andy. Who I understand, was the apple of her eye! I like the idea that they are together again.
Our condolences to all the Kirk family. Though we have grown apart over the years and we live all over the country, the family name and memories will always bond us.

Of all the wonderful memories that I have there is one that is foremost in my thoughts now.
Despite her diminutive stature; Nanny stood so tall. Nothing short of a pillar. The foundation on which our family was built.
She taught us to hold dearly that which we cherish; our family, our beliefs. To defend them fiercely when necessary but not to foist or flaunt,
That the mind is our greatest source of power and our best escape,
That words are to be weighed but not minced,
... and there is no hurt that can't be undone with...
and perhaps no greater peace than...
love, a swing and a froggy would a wooing go...

Love and devotion to her family, endless words of wisdom from her generous spirit and kind heart.
Gently wrap yourself in the warm memories of your mother,
Let the Love that held you close continue to bring you strength and comfort.
Thank you Jean for your guidance and love and for being Nanny to my children always.
May you be at peace now.

Til' we meet again Nanny. I was fortunate enough to have you there helping raise and support me, and for that (among countless other things) I am grateful. Words can't do justice for what kind of life you had, an inspirational one to say the least. Your knowledge and wisdom will stay with me forever, and will also be passed down to my children. Your legacy is strong, and will not be forgotten. God bless.
