    My sincere condolences for the loss of your beloved mother.

    I came to know her through our mutual friend, the late Joan Meers. I had an opportunity to visit her several times in Calgary when I travelled there to see my own son and daughter.

    May your love and memories of her give you strength.

    Sincerely, Geraldine Barnes, Georgetown, Ontario
