  1. Dear Hugh, John and families.

    My thoughts are with you both and your entire family in this difficult time of your loss. My Mom also passed a few months ago and I know this is a difficult time of grieving no matter how full our parents’ lives may have been. Time doesn’t fully heal your loss but I do believe it becomes more bearable, and in time all the good memories of your time together with your Mom will prevail. Be strong and know your friends are thinking of you.

    Tom

    Dear John, Steve, Marilyn,Hugh &Nina: We have not met some of you but this message is for you all. As residents of Scenic Acres Retirement Center we have enjoyed the company of Catherine for about 4 years and have grown to love her as one of our own. I personally only shared a brief encounter with her husband Bill through many years at GULF CANADA. We have shared time with John and know how much you loved your mom. We pray for all of you at this time and know that you all have wonderful memories of Catherine. RIP dear friend. Gods Blessings to you all. GORDON & ENID

    Susan, Patrick, and I are thinking of you all at this difficult time and hope that our thoughts can lift yours a little. I think all the way back to Grade 7, Nina, when you were one of my first friends in my new home, Calgary. I’ve thought of your Mom as a piece of my Calgary foundation, she has always been here, and I feel a bit a drift.
