    To Bruce, Jennifer and Angela and your families …. I am sorry that you have lost your mom and grandma. Even though it was time for Mae to leave, I know you will go on feeling the sadness of her loss, as will her good friends and supporters.

    I will miss my Auntie Mae, her loving energy, and our many visits reminiscing together over Sterling family photos and memories. Bill and I often recall fun Calgary visits at Stampede time, and think of Auntie Mae and Uncle Bud as we watch the Chucks on tv each year.

    Our more recent chats were on the phone, and that cheerful, bell-like voice will always be with me.

    Be at rest, Auntie Mae.

    To Bruce and Donna, Jennifer and Angela and families:
    Our sincere condolences on Mae’s passing. We are remembering Mae’s beautiful smile, her warmth, and caring ways. We met Bud and Mae when we moved to Huntington Hills. There was always an invite for coffee and chat…catching up with family news, special events in their lives. Bud and Irvin always talking about all things mechanical. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all today.
