    Dear Barb, John and families, thinking of you. I know your Mother’s life’s journey was well lived and that you helped to make it a wonderful one for her. Your Mother raised two beautiful caring daughters and although I’ve not met your Brother I’m sure he is a great man too. It is also a sad time, but you can take comfort that she was well loved and cared for. Love Pattie and Ron Culver

    To Winnifred’s family, I was deeply saddened to hear of the recent loss of your beloved Winnifred. She had been a patient of mine for several years and was always so kind to myself and my staff.In fact, I looked upon her more as a friend than a patient. She always had words of encouragement for me during some stressful times in my journey. And I truly appreciated her loyalty to me when I moved my practice. I always looked forward to her visits. I will miss her deeply and keep her in my heart forever. She was a true lady, in every sense of the word. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Catherine S. Bulanda

    I am very sorry for your loss. Death continues to wreak havoc. However, we can have hope and comfort in the words found in Revelation 21:4 when “death will be nor more, nor pain be anymore…”

    On behalf of myself and my wife Diane, and my Dad Reid and his wife Denise, we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the entire family at the passing of your Mom.

    I have very fond memories of your Mom and Dad up at Arundel, and the good times we all had. It was always a pleasant surprise when “Mrs. Ferrie” would stop by to check up on the place.

    Our thoughts, and our prayers, are with you all at this time.

    Blair Marshall and Family

    Dear Barb, John and Family,
    I am so sorry to hear of Win’s recent passing. For me Barb, your Mum, was a connection to our St. Lambert years when we first met at Mrs. Little’s Nursery School! Here we are all these years later. Win was a truly remarkable lady who led an exemplary life. How wonderful she could spend her latter years near all of you in Calgary.
    Our thoughts are with you.
    Joan and Sean

    Dear Barb, Lynn and families,

    Harvey and I were very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. We knew your Mom from the St. Lambert Curling Club. When we moved to Calgary in ’97, I had the pleasure of spending time with Win and getting to know her better. She was an extraordinary woman – warm, kind, intelligent, great sense of humour, always upbeat, always learning ( i.e. the computer) and a wonderful cook!

    Now that we are back in Montreal I will miss hearing from Win.

    I hope that you will find comfort in the memories of your Mom.

    Sincerely, Janet Carter
