    Dear Mali, Ola, Selma and Families,
    I was so saddened to hear of your mother’s passing. I have such fond memories of Inga from growing up in Watson. I was often blessed to visit with her when I went back home to visit and she would pop into Bev and Brian Toye’s for coffee with us. She was so positive and had such good stories and such a sense of humour! I will hold you all in my thoughts and prayers.
