  8. Dear Doris

    I’m hoping that you remember me… way back in 1971 when you taught me at Maple Grove Public School. My name is Dale Pearson and I play the organ at Emmanuel Baptist and knew J.D. and Mildred Birnie. My sincere condolences on your husband’s passing. What a great career and life Lloyd lived. I often think of you and the impact you had on my life and hold very fond memories of you as a gifted teacher. My parents Wib and Joan Pearson along with my sister Gwen also pass along the condolances and love to you during this difficult time. May you truly feel God’s love around you as you reflect upon and celebrate Lloyd’s life.

    With deepest sympathy,

    Dale Pearson,
    Barrie, Ontario

    Dear Doris,

    By chance I saw the announcement of Lloyd’s passing. We have not been in touch for many years, however I fondly remember times spent together and your gracious ways with Jim and I and Heather when we first moved to Barrie. I often go by where you lived and remember fondly the many times we visited. I wish you God’s strength and love to sustain you and the family through this time.

    Our Prayers are with you.
