    Dear Hugh & family
    We were deeply saddened and shocked at the news of Irma’s passing.
    Although it has been years since living in the “valley”, good memories of reunions, Sunday picnics under the maples, many happy visits here and in Calgary pay tribute to what a great person Aunt Irma was.
    Mom will truly miss the frequent telephone chats they shared over the years and the friendship which they had shared over a lifetime.
    Know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Elaine, Heather, Janice, Sandra, Gail and families.
