    Dear Lana and family,

    Thinking of you as you say good-bye to your Mom. I will always remember her walking around our little crescent. When we first moved to Varsity Ridge I had a maroon coloured car – a New Yorker and she would recognize it and wave to me. Then I changed cars and she would not wave any more until I stopped one day and she knew it was me and the wave started all over again.

    You will miss her so much – I hope the happy memories that you have of her will help you today and in the days to follow. Those precious memories are yours to keep forever!

    My thoughts are with you,

    Fern Robertson – 55 Varsity Ridge Terrace N.W.
