I remember Nellie and Jack’s kindness to myself and my family after a personal tragedy many years ago in Montreal. She was a lovely woman.

Hello. I didn’t know Aunt Nellie very well but what I do remember about her was her elegance. I thought she was beautiful. I wish I would have known her better.
We are so sorry for your loss, Uncle Jacob. Much love and hugs. Maryanne and Gerry.
