    Sincere Condolences to your family.
    Olive was a kind and friendly neighbor of my parents Jack & Marg Tibbitt. MY husband Ernie & Myself enjoyed spending time with her also. She was
    very proud of her family and always shared current pictures & talked about studies etc of her grandchildren while serving tea or cold drink. Her home was beautifully kept and she enjoyed her flowers & yard. We were amazed that she kept smiling even with severe & painful arthritis. Your Dad wired our basement in Varsity back in 1964. Very sorry we are unable to attend the service today .

    I have received word of your Mother’s passing. She was one of my friends I missed when I moved to Regina. Through the Lamplighters group and going for lunch after service I got to know her well. It was so good that you were there when she needed you most. As you have the memorial service today may you find peace in knowing she is no longer suffering. She was a role model for many of us.
    I have remembered your Mother with a memorial gift to the Canadian Cancer Society. Blessings and God’s peace to each of you!
