  7. My condolences to all the family after being a neighbour of ‘Tina’ for 27 years. It is with great sadness and fond memories- not the least being when we chased a mouse around my garden!- that I write these few words. I wonder if she was already sick when I finally left my home on May 30th, to move to Ontario, because I went to the house three times to say godbye, yet never did see her.
    My thoughts are with you all
