    Lorene, Sharon, Colin, Alyson and Davis, my deepest sympathies for your loss. I remember your mom/grandmother as a very friendly happy person. She always had a smile when I met her. The days to come will not be easy, but remembering the happy times usually helps a little. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  3. Lorene,
    I only met your mother the one time, but having known you, your parents were of the best kind, loving, nurturing and supportive. Your mothers best legacy are the wonderful children she’s left behind. My thoughts and heart are with you.
    Sharon
