  1. On behalf of our mother, Annie Frances (Dalrymple) Lind, Aunt Rite’s sister-in-law, we would like to express our sincere condolences on the event of her passing. She was a wonderful, positive spirit on each of the several occasions we met, including family weddings and funerals. She and my mother, as fellow educators, always had lots in common to share with one another. Mom is now 92 and resides in a seniors’ group home in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. May your family be blessed in the knowledge that Aunt Rite lives on in all of our hearts. Sincerely, the Carter and Lind families (Karen and Margaret).
