    So sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences goes out to you and your family.
    Bev was a strong, determined woman who fought hard against all odds to remain independent and self sufficient.
    Ron, you have been an amazing care partner to Bev over these last few years of her life… giving her every opportunity to be involved in her care, interests and personal choices. Providing her with the highest quality of life she could ever ask for.

    May you and your family find strength to get through this sad and difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this challenging time.

  3. One of my favorite memories of Bev is from her daughter Shawna. Shawna spent a great deal of time caring for and spending time with both her mum and dad. On this particular day, Shawna and her mm had stopped at Sobeys to grab some groceries on their way home. Shawna’s mum LOVED Mars bars!!! She snuck a few extras in and amongst the groceries thinking Shawna didn’t notice! Of course, Shawna pretended she didn’t. We giggled about this every time we talked about it! My sincerest condolences Shawna, Ron and family.
