  4. To Lauren,Todd and Garth,
    I was very sad to hear the passing of your mother.Sincere condolences to all your family and friends.I grew up next door but have sadly lost touch with you.I remember your mother as a very warm and spontaneous person who always had the coffee pot on. I don’t know how many gallons of coffee our mothers consumed over the years !She kept an immaculate house and had a flair for interior design.She was creative and recounted to my mom how she once assisted Garth in a design project when he was taking engineering courses at U of C.They were given some props and had to design a gadget..Garth and Carolyn collaborated their ideas and ended up with the second highest mark in the class.
    And YES..she certainly loved her poodles..although I was never quite sure what she thought of our neurotic basenji (dog),Kola.
    My thoughts are with you at this difficult time
    Donna Fraser
