  2. Brian, I was saddened to hear of the passing of Joanne. Under the circumstances of her disease I suppose a bit of a blessing but nonetheless I’m sure will be very missed. Please except mine and Heather’s condolences. Also I am sorry that I will not be able to attend the funeral as I am required to be in Ottawa and New Port until 21st of Sept.
    Sincerely
    Dennis

  6. The funeral for Joanne was a wonderful tribute to her life. I wish Gloria and I had known her. The eulogies by Robert and her friend were very touching. We did not attend the reception, as we would not have known anyone and you would have been very busy. Take care my friend and we will see you when you are ready.
