    Dear Val:

    Please accept my condolences on the death of your mother. I did meet her, I think either at the Residence or while skiing at Pidgeon Mountain with the Jefferies. How wonderful that she lived for such a long time and had such an interesting and busy life. I remember you so well. Always smiling! I would love to hear from you sometime. My life has taken some interesting turns and I would like to hear about YOURS.

    Take care. I will be thinking of you on Friday.

  5. What a lady!!!!!Mrs. Sasso was a woman with a few words but a lot on her mind. She had a gentle demeanor and yet very set in her way. It was a privilege and an honor to care for her at Bethany Care. She has left her imprint in my life.

    Only a few times in one’s life do you have the pleasure of being touched by someone so special! I found a copy of a presentation that I made to Mrs. Sasso at our Grade 9 graduation in Exshaw in 1976 along with a picture of my sister Laurie and myself with the dear lady! Cathy & Val, If you would like a copy, please let me know and I will send it to you! My thoughts and prayers are with you all!
