  1. Mary and Ed Parsons :

    Dear Sandy, Graham, Barbara and Colin,
    It was with shock that we read about your mother’s death in the paper this past week but it was still a blessing in view of her unfortunate health, and the fact that your father died in February.
    Isn’t it amazing that she died so soon after! Your whole family must know how much we sympathize to all of course, but death in these cases is the way our lives conclude and both of them made you proud in the way they conducted them. How very much they’ll be missed!!
    Our sincere condolences, Ed and Mary.
