    My heart is breaking. My darling May was an Aunt, a Mother, a sister and a best friend all rolled in to one wonderful person who I will miss terribly. All her family here in May’s beloved Scotland send their deep condolences and love to Stewart, Michael and their families.

    I had the good fortune to meet May at the CBEREA bowling and golf league play. Her great sense of humor and lively attitude was appreciated. Please know I was saddened to learn of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. I will smile whenever I think of your Mom.

    Dave and I would like to send our deepest condolences to the loved ones of May. We only knew
    her a short time. She always had a smile when we arrived at the airport for our shift
    and we have missed her a lot as she fought her battle. Even the day of the luncheon I
    remember most her smile that day and her courage to treat her White Hatter friends to an
    awesome get together to let us say goodbye in person. She has been and will continue to be missed at White Hatter get together’s.

    I was heartbroken when I heard the news. One of the most precious people I’ve ever met, truly a gem. A dear friend of my Moms who I always considered an Auntie. Deepest condolences to the family.

    I`m still numb and haven`t really taken the news in. No more skype calls, no more lovely e-mails with tales of Calgary and Vancouver. I have loved her visits back to Scotland over the last few years, trailling around places that meant so much to my Aunt in her childhood, and hugely admired her determination to find out information about her ancestry…….I will finish the family tree and pass on to Stewart and Michael. Will be thinking of you all this morning…

    I am so sorry for your loss. I met May on a very memorable hiking holiday in Sorrento Italy. A group of retired hikers from here in Calgary went to Sorrento and it was truly a blessing to have May in our midst. Her beautiful smile and wonderful sense of humour added greatly to the richness of our experiences in Italy. I will always remember our bus ride along the road to Amalfi. It was May’s misfortune to have a window seat as we travelled the winding highway along the Mediterranean coast. In spite of having taken her “happy pill” that morning, she “white knuckled” it until we reached the beautiful town of Amalfi. Needless to say she did not fall down the steep cliffs and was able to enjoy our hike up into the hills that day.
    I know her passing will leave a sad, empty place in your family. I hope that happy memories will soften the sadness.
