    Dear Family,
    We send you all our heartfelt sympathy at this difficult time. I have been reminiscing a bit about times we spent with Auntie Phyllis and can hear her chuckle 😉 I recall family parties in the basement of their home in Calgary – lots of laughing, dancing and family having fun together. We hope that your memories help to ease your sadness.

    Brenda & Dennis

    Dear Family,
    Our deepest sympathy in the loss of your Mother. We spent some time with Aunty Phyllis last summer in Osoyoos and really enjoyed our visit. We’ll miss her wonderful sense of humor and will surely think of her often. Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time.

  3. Sheila Ketler and family :

    I would like to offer our sympathy on the loss of your mother grandmother and great-grandmother. My husband Mark lived with Phyllis in Calgary and he remembers her wonderful homemade fish and chip dinners. I met Phyllis several times when she visited with Mark’s mother Elsie and I remember her wonderful poppyseed bread. When my youngest son David was born she came for dinner at our home and accompanied us to the Neonatal so she could meet our son.

    We all offer you our sympathy at this time.

    Mark, Sheila, David, Christopher, Jessalyn, Brendan, and Traviss Ketler from Thorold Ontario
