    Debbie, Shonnie, and your families,
    We have very fond memories of your mom. She had such a good energy about her, always a bright and cheery smile. We are honoured to have a few of her goose egg Christmas ornaments that have adorned our tree for 30 years, and the musical eggs given to us by Mickie on the birth of our boys. We cherish each of them, as we cherish her in our hearts. A very special lady. Hugs and love to you all.
    Annette and Marv Resler
