  3. I’m so sorry that we won’t be able to attend the service, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be thinking of all of you. My happiest memories of my Aunt Winn include the many hours we spent walking together in Calgary’s parks – usually Fish Creek – back when I was a young woman. We would put on our sensible shoes and hoof it around the paths about once a week; chattering our heads off. Winn was kind to me and would make me cookies – yum – and I appreciated the odd little favors she surprised me with.
