    It’s been a long time since we communicated with our old Drayton Valley neighbours,the Shanleys. We are so very sad it has to be under these circumstances but we just had to pay tribute to a great Lady. Tillie was a prime example of a genuine person, always had a smile that exposed her inner self. Michelle, Brent and Karen, we know your current pain is hard to bear but will slowly give way to the fond memories of your Mom.
    May God bless you all
    Clare and Henry Vaugeois

    I have been looking for John Shanley. He worked for Pembina Pipeline,and was a God send for me and my sister when our parents were killed in a car accident many years ago. I have never thanked him personally for his kindness and generosity.

    I also offer my condolences in the loss of your loved one. My deepest sympathy.
