  1. Brenda (Gillcash)Moffett :

    Dear Aunt Agnes and cousins,
    Please accept my sincere sympathy for the death of Uncle Cecil. Although we saw very little of you and him as we were growing up in Parkindale,we enjoyed the brief visits when you could come home to see Grammie and Grampy Prosser. My mother looked up to him(literally, I guess due to his height) and always enjoyed seeing all of you. Linda, I have enjoyed your visits to NB in recent years and empathize with you in the loss of a father. Praying that God will be with you all in these next difficult days.
