Lori McEwenMy Dearest Aunt Hedi, I don't know what I did to deserve a "Special" Aunt like you, Someone who always loves me no matter what I do. It's so nice to know that you'll be there for me in the good times & the bad. To laugh with me in happy times and cheer me when I'm sad. I had no say in choosing you-You've been there from the very start. And with each passing day you become more loved & dearer in my heart. You meant the world to me & were my best friend. I stood by you, till your very end. When you get to heaven please tell Mom, Dad, Family & our Pets that I love & miss them too. Love you " Forever" Aunt Hedi!!! Lori XO

Judith ReavellHedi you have been an inspiring friend and family member. Thank you for brightening up our lives, Mom and Dad thoroughly loved visiting you and Alf. You stood with us in happy times and in times when we required your help to stand on our own. You showed such courage and leadership by going to teach in China and to help countless children to grow and make a difference because you cared to make a difference. You made us laugh with your numerous stories of your travels,. Thoughts of you will bring smiles to our faces and joy to our hearts. Thank you for sharing stories of your youth and helping us realize what a brave new world you helped to create. Thank you for being you! God Bless and may you dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Lynn RonconiDearest Hedi We didn't have much family here in Canada from my Dad's side. You and your family filled that gap nicely. I will always remember the family trips back and forth from Guelph to London right from when we were very young. I will never forget the summer that you 'invited' me as a teenager to come and live with you to care for Micheal and David. Thinking back on the adventures of that summer and the misadventures (thank you God for David's eye not being hit by that arrow from the kid's archery set) I suspect that you may have had difficulty finding a sitter locally for your little ruffians.LOL. But I do know that I learned alot from your family dynamics about being a great mother. Thank you for that and all the support, visits and kindness you have shown our family over the years. With love. Your Cousin Lynn.
Sofia & Les IndoeOur heartfelt condolences are sent to Michael and David, their family and friends. We will certainly miss the truly lovely and kind person she was with her amazing smile that reached miles. Rest in peace Hedi.

Gwen Williamson Please accept my sincere sympathy on the death of Hedi, your Mother and Grandmother. We bonded over tales of travel and Chinese adventures. Hedi was generous in sharing photographs and knowledge. At some Trident meetings, it was fun to watch her squirming as she waited for an opportunity to make a break for the golf course. Hedi was a lovely, gracious woman. She will be missed.
