Book of Condolences

Toinette and Tony ParisioDear Bob, Neil, Susan, Pat,Kathleen,John, Beth and family. I am so sorry for your loss of Mary., your mom, mother-in-law, grandma, great grandma. Mary has been a real gift in my life for many years now in London, with our visits weekly when I was around or bi-weekly if I had to be away for L'Arche. She has been a role-model for me, a teacher, a friend, a story teller, a prayer-partner. I have learnt so much from her wisdom , her humour, her faith, her Irish roots... I have been blessed to have met her at St George, to have been trusted and welcomed by her in her home. I cherish many conversations, many moments we shared with Maggy, faithful dog friend. I pray for each of you in grief of a remarkable woman . I express gratitude for her long life. Every time we met, last night our last time, Mary prayed for each one of you. Peace for the journey ahead without her physical presence, she will stay close and present in Spirit.
Ellen & David ManuelDear Mike, Pat and all the Brooks family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Met Mrs. Brooks at your wedding so many years ago and never forgot her kindness and graciousness. We always looked forward to her Christmas card every year since. Our deepest sympathy for your loss.
