  5. Dear Randy & Wendy

    I am so sorry to hear of your Moms passing .She was a dear friend to me for years.
    I met her when we both worked at South Center. Joy at Taco Time, me at Shoppers Drugs. We shared many a joke and laughs together. I helped her spruce up her house when she she put it on the market . We sewed curtains and table cloths etc. and had tons of fun doing it. I joined Spa Lady with her. We went to lunch or shopping together. We would listen to old music that she loved. She loved bargain day at Kentucky Fried Chicken . She was a loving Grandmother and was so proud of their accomplishments. I met Jesse when he was staying with her at her apartment and going to school (SAIT, I think) in Calgary. Then, I lost touch with her her. Canada post returned the birthday and Christmas cards I sent her. “No longer at this address”. I stopped at her apartment on may occasions but no one seemed to know where she went. I miss her and our little outings.
    With Sincere Sympathy.
