    Dear Pauline and Family,
    We were very sorry to read about Buster’s death in the Pembroke Observer today. Our deepest sympathy to all of you. May all of your loving and happy memories of Buster bring you comfort during this very sad and difficult time. We are keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers.
    Although we were younger, we do remember when you and Buster lived in Pembroke. We know that Mom and Dad shared lots of fun and good times with both of you.
    Thanks Pauline for all of your kindness to Mom when she was alive and living at Supples Landing. I know that she always enjoyed your notes in your Xmas cards to her.
    Take care, Cathy, Ed, and Dale Cotnam & families
