  1. Linda Gaetz- Roberts, Ken Roberts and Family :

    Uncle Bill, Anna, Rite and families. So sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a great lady and was so good to us when my Dad was ill and dying.
    I would have been at the service but am in Vancouver at this time.
    My thoughts are with you all.

  2. Gail and Ron Bremner :

    We want to express our sincere condolences to everyone on Rose’s passing. We were always impressed with her spirit and determination and we were always looking forward to hearing about her latest adventure in either phoning Al Duerr, Dave Bronconnier or Dave Rutherford and setting them straight on what was really going on. I was always most thankful that Rose wasn’t a hockey fan as I can’t imagine how I could have taken the ‘heat’ from her during some of our losing streaks.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family at this time—

    Love, Your friends,

    Gail/Ron Bremner
    King City, Ontario
