So many joyful memories in Longfellow Estates, the best moments of many a child were of Capture the Flag with "home" at the Sifferlen's. A lovely lady, brilliant, and a great friend to all. She and Tom were an example of what is good, what one can achieve and being an individual can be inspirational- and her laugh! And nothing better than when she smiled, either in amusement, greeting or as a silent response to shenanigans. Oh that was a gift! My heart, deepest sympathy and prayers go out to the Sifferlen family and all who had the pleasure of her company. God bless.

Tom and I shared so many happy evenings and events with Margaret and Tom with the Sudbury Villagers Club. We wined and dined with them and always enjoyed their company. They will be missed.

Dear Peter and Family,
Many beautiful memories of your mother as we were growing up. She was always so welcoming and I will always remember her delicious lunches whenever I would visit the big Sudbury house.
Peace to you all.

Dear Mary,

I was sorry to read about your dear mom's passing in the Globe today. I'm sure she was proud of all of you. You look a lot like her.

Hope you are taking care and healthy.

Love and prayers,
