  1. I too, am very saddened to read about May’s demise. She was a great friend, companion, and colleague. We taught together for several years and thoroughly enjoyed being neighbours at our school. I was honoured to meet and to know so many of May’s families. Shane and Darwin were very special to me. May led an outstanding life and was dearly loved by all that met and knew her.

  2. I wanted to send my deepest condolences. Mrs. Aslam was my teacher in the late 70’s and I remember singing with her with such great fondness.
    My thoughts are with you all.

  3. May was my daughter’s grade one teacher at Keeler Elementary and a colleague of mine at the same school. We stayed in touch with each other through the other grade one teachers. When Margaret Saunders was alive we went to visit your mother at Wentworth Manor. May was always smiling and always had something nice to say. She was great with the little students and had their best interests at heart. She was generous with everyone and always seemed to have an adventure going on in her life. I am glad I was able to know her.
