    Millie phoned me about your Mom’s passing. She was such a lovely lady and will be missed by so many. I recall having coffee with her at her home in Calgary along with the goodies she made. I will be thinking of her.
    With caring, Delphine

    Iam so sorry to hear about the loss of your mom! Truly a huge loss for all who had the priviledge of knowing such a special person. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love leaves a memory no one can steal!!
    May you carry and cherish the many fond memories that were clearly filled with all may they give you strength during this difficult time. I would have attended the service but unfortuately was out of town. Our families thoughts and prayers are with you all.
