Book of Condolences

M'Laurel ThompsonDear David, Brenda, Hayley and Brooke My deepest condolences to all of you! I hope and pray that in the coming days you will find comfort in all the wonderful memories of Lyn. For me I was shocked to hear the news. She went so quickly, and for that I'm very thankful. David, I always enjoyed our visits with your mom. I will truly miss her views on certain subjects and her sense of humour. Regrettably I am not able to come and pay my respects, but I will be thinking of all you Friday and Saturday.
Bob and Jan ChisholmDavid and Brenda Our thoughts are with you at this time, it was really special that you were there when she passed.
Anne Bond and FamilyDavid, we were so sad to hear the news of your Mum's passing. Sincere condolences to you, Brenda and the girls. We have fond memories of our "PSI" family and friendship starting many years ago and our Willowdale connection. Lyn was a strong independent lady with a great sense of humour. She'll be sadly missed.
Mike & Carol BuchinskiOur sincere condolences, our thoughts are with you...
