  3. Dear John, Randy and Michelle:
    We are all saddened by the loss of your mother, our Auntie Ethel. I hope that you are coping in the best possible way during this difficult time.
    I always will remember her – the times when we used to come over to your house just off Weston Road in Toronto and also when you all left to go on the adventure to Calgary, I remember being so sad then!!
    I am sure there is a party going on now with both our sets of parents in Heaven all together again, they had so much fun together a long time ago
    God Bless you and yours, our thoughts are with you all
    Mark Hulme and family
