  5. Dear Glenda, Kirsten, Neil, David, Michael, Annika, Wayne and Diane,
    Our sincere condolences on the loss of Violet. We know how much the loss of Mom, Grandma, and GG means to you because Violet was such a wonderful, warm woman. We remember the great visits we had in Victoria: the clothes shopping and coffee dates but most especially the dinners with four generations of the Swansons, Yeates and Pughs together. The conversations and Violets comments on politics, growing up in Saskatchewan, family, gardening and food were so much fun. We will miss all this. Much love, Anne and Lawrie.

  6. Dear Glenda, Wayne and families and sister Florence – I have many fond memories of Vi over the years we lived as neighbors in Hampton house. The many card games- she loved cribbage, cups of tea and visits. She kept me up to date on her family and was so proud of you all. I missed her when she left for Victoria but I know she enjoyed her years there. I hope the many happy memories you all have of your lives together will bring you comfort in the days ahead. My daughter Donalyn Price and I extend our sincere sympathy to you all.
    In Loving Friendship
    Javonne Miller
