  1. My earliest memories of your mom was when we use to go to Dakotas on Friday’s and have cocktails with Mike Smillie and the gang. Your mom has always been a very graceful and elegant person that inspired alot of people. I also have a memory of us looking at the birds outside her window at the hospice. She had the strength and courage that I have never witnessed in an individual. It was a honor for me to have had the chance to know her.
