    Dear Len, Arlene, Gary, Rae, Shaune; I just heard the news of your Mom and wanted you to know how truly sorry I am for your loss. My thoughts are with you all as I know what you and your families must be going through right now. Hold tight to memories for comfort, lean on each other for strength. I remember Nancy’s visit to me before I moved to Ontario many years ago and her wise words of wisdom. I’ve never forgotten them and they guided me more than she ever knew. Although we are miles apart, you are all in my heart and prayers. Deb.
