    Oh, Gord and Judy,
    How I wish I could give you a big hug! I am saddened to read of your mother’s death, Gord, but encouraged to read of a tree’s being planted in her memory. It is never easy to have someone close to us die. Whether it was sudden,or long awaited, the finality of it all catches us unawares. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers as you adjust to this new reality.
    Lovingly, Marg

    Received the news of Jean’s passing with shock and sadness. Will remember her special wit (her “Imjean” story from the far east when she and Bill lived there), her passion and skill with sewing and, without a doubt, one of the best cooks ever. Yummy and special (only Jean’s recipe) nanaimo bars just for Bruce when we came to visit. Now she will be making them for him in Heaven. My heartfelt condolences to the family. God speed, Imjean.

    So sorry to hear about your mother. My dad Eldon also passed away on May 9th. They were friends and both will be greatly missed. I remember sharing stories with your mom at the family reunion last summer. She was a wonderful lady and I am sure dad and her are up there somewhere sharing a good story about their growing up years. Janet

    Dear Gordy and Judy, Alan and Carol,
    So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I remember when she came to Broadview to plant the garden every year. I don’t remember her cooking for me, Gordy was usually in the kitchen then, but she was a delight to talk to. She always was ready to laugh.
