My deepest sympathy to Rosalie, Richard, Valerie and Stephen. My memories of your mother are mostly as a young women when she visited us in Halifax. I was a child admiring this stylish pretty woman who came to visit. Through the years I visited in Toronto a few times and she was always so glad to see a long lost relative. I know you will miss her but remember the happy time and the legacy of family I am sure she has left you. My husband joins me in our condolences.
Cousin Marilyn Harris and Bruce Martin.

She was always so happy just to have your company and someone who would listen to her stories. Nothing mattered more to her than that simple visit with her children / grandchildren -- a quality that is extremely rare in today's world. She was an incredible grandmother and will be deeply missed.
