    To all the Quiring family from the Montgomery Family from our life in Wildwood living near you! We could look down Wimbledon Dr and see your house.
    Brian was at many of Bev’s birthday parties.
    We send our sincere sympathy to each one! Your Mother was a faithful and kind friend to us. We owe her many debts of gratitude for the many times she helped our family. Especially, we appreciated her very kind help when we phoned her about 2:00 AM and she came to stay with our 2 little girls when we had to rush Baby Joanne to the Emergency at the General Hospital with a life-threatening illness. Fortunately, Doctors were able to save her and it was a very close call. Your Mother and family were very supportive to us at that time and it will always be remembered with love! God bless all! Jack, Isobel, and family

    Sorry, in the first e-mail I mistakenly said Brian when I meant Garry was at Bev’s birthday paries. I used to see Brian at many schools when he was teaching piano lessons and I was teaching a grade! I remember each one of you very clearly and send my condolences again!
