    I don’t think anyone will miss Aunt Lil more than I. Our visits to her always culminated in her waving from the door or window. We’ll always remember that.
    And the tea and cookies of course. And we’ll always remember her for her many acts of kindness

    Our condolences to the family

    Much love Barrie & Edie

  4. Pauline,
    It is hard to lose a loved one at any time, but especially at this time of the year. Your mom lived to a very ripe age. I know she will be missed, but just remember the good times. Our memories are our best comforts. Take care.
    Helma

    To Pauline and all of Lil’s family

    Lil was a wonderful neighbour. I will so miss her cheerful smile…and our “shouted” conversations through the fence. Her spirit, independence and utter joy for life have inspired me over the years….and will forever be part of my memory of her.

    My most heartfelt condolences to you all,

    Diane McGregor

    Dear Family, We were so fortunate to have met Aunt Lil through Colin and his family. What a incredible lady she was. And living on her own… that is a achievement. She will be missed by her family and friends. Our prayers are with you at this sad time. Many hugs, J and G
