    Gord and Darrel,

    There are very few people that we meet in our lifetime that earn a spot in our hearts. Max was one of those people. In fact, she was a “starr” in all of the Starr families lives. She was a wonderful lady and I know that you will miss her forever. You are in our thoughts.
    Love,
    Barb, Leon and Family.

    Dear Mr. Stephenson and Darrel,

    One of my fondest childhood memories is of going over to “Steama”‘s house to get my hair curled while my Mum went to the hairdressers. We were very lucky to have her as an honourary Starr, and will miss her greatly.

    Nancy, Peter, Dan and Owen
