  4. I am so saddened on the sudden loss of my long time neighbour. Brenda and I shared many stories over the last 32 years. We had the one road trip together with the girl’s soccer team and it remains a fond memory for me. We also had numerous trips over to St. Catherine’s elementary school together to listen to the kids’ celebrations. To the family, I send my condolences on the loss of someone who was dearly loved and will be missed by all of us.

    It was the beautiful photo of Brenda that caught my attention. I hadnt seen her in years but recognized her right away. Thank you for publishing it. Brenda was my first supervisor at GSI, in keypunch, 1973. At 19 I was the baby in the flexo pool. The conversations that Brenda and the other girls had were fascinating to me. Brenda was my first boss and left a lasting impression with her patience, kindness and gentle but firm guidance. I will always remember her. My sincere sympathies on your loss. Dot Conne (Hale)

  15. Mom,

    It’s been over 3 years since you left. The pain still hurts just as bad as the day you left. Juniper and Sookie are doing so well at 16 months old. I see a lot of your attitude in my little (ok not so little) Sookie. I can’t help to think how happy these two little girls would have made you. I know you would have spoiled them to the end of the world. I wish you were here, I could sure use your advise!!! I think about you all the time mom. Love and miss you.

    Your daughter, Lori ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
