  6. Betty and Kevin and families: I was very saddened to hear of Auntie Jean’s passing. Our families spent many wonderful holidays together and shared many fun times. Now all the Webb siblings are back together and I am sure there is a Smear game going on right now. I am sorry I am not able to make it back to Calgary today for the service. Please know that I am thinking of you all today. May the peace that comes from the memories of love shared comfort you now and in the days ahead.
    Love, Penny
