    To all our dear family,

    It’s with heavy hearts we receive this very sad news. We’re writing from almost 10,000kms away, but our hearts are near. Our warmest and deepest thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

    I am reminded of the Bible psalm, “teach us to number our days…” (Psalms 90:12).
    We often live as if we have unlimited days, weeks, months and years. Then we realize that so much time has gone by, seemingly in the blink of an eye; regretting words spoken and especially those unspoken.

    I pray this will serve as a gentle reminder to all of us to truly love one another in thought, deed and word.

    (Grandma, we love you very much and wanted to you let you know that you have a 3rd grand-baby on the way).

    – Balazs, Christina, Destiny, Anabelle & Baby 3
    (Toth Family)

    Dear Kathy, Aniko, Liza, and John,

    Liz and I were both shocked and saddened when we learned of the passing of your Mother. Although, lately, we did not have the pleasure of seeing her often we have countless fond memories of the wonderful times we had together when your Family lived in the Cochrane area.

    Our hope for all of you is that your fond memories of your Mother will help you through this difficult time.

    Please accept our sincere condolences at this time.
