  10. Our deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother. We met your parents many years ago when your mom was babysitting for Elaine. Although we didn’t see her very often, she was always pleasant and we remember her beautiful smile. Our thoughts are with all of you.
    Sincerely,

  11. Scott and Lori,
    With heart felt sorrow, we wish to express our sincerest sorrow for the tremendous loss of your mother. She was second or third breakfast depending on whether Graeme went to his best friend’s house or his cousin’s house before all three went to school every morning in their younger days – Graeme especially loved her home-made donuts! She was a mother first and a teacher second. In many ways I admire her commitment to family-for I myself had it backward for a time. There is nothing more precious than the time we have together – especially the “forever” friends. Perhaps under these trying times we have an opportunity to draw together once again.
    With Love and unquestioning support,
    Ivana and Graeme Broatch
