Sue & Ziad RahmanSam, we were so sorry to hear about the passing of your grandmother. Our deepest condolences to you and your family.
Brian and Bonnie, Aunt Phyllis and Aunt JanetOur deepest sympathy to Cindy on the loss of her mother, thinking of you and family.
Eileen Dobell I was so sorry to read of Lillian's death. She was a friend and fellow teacher in the adult English classes (ESL) at Crouch Library for many years. She was always a comforting and encouraging presence to her students who often new to Canada, felt lost and anxious trying to fit into this new country and culture. She made a difference! God bless you, Lil.
David and RosellaWe will miss Aunt Lil. We have had some great and fun times at the cottage, and BBQs at her place. Aunt Lil always had a great laugh over family stories. She will be reunited with Gord and her brothers. Rest in Peace, Aunt Lil.
MarionI will miss you little sister. We didn't spend a lot of time together over the years due to our differences in age and travel, but you were always in my heart and mind. I well remember the early days in Woodstock, when we would spend hours on the phone, chatting about who knows what! God bless you Lil, you will never leave my heart.
B&B DorseyBye Lil, you will truly be missed. We always enjoyed your company. Great conversations, stories… and your trivial pursuit skills were amazing!
