  2. Ross and Lynne,
    Paul and I send our deepest sympathy to you and your family on the loss of your mom. You are in our thoughts during this sad time.

  3. Dear Earl, Ross, Neal, John, Dean and families We were saddened to hear of your Mom / Grandma’s passing. It seems we have had to say Good-bye to far too many of our precious neighbours in the past few weeks & months. We have very nice memories of visits, “bath and hair days” with talks of days gone bye and time spent visiting your Mom in her home and at Fiddick’s. May the Lord surround you with His comforting presence and love at this difficult time. Love & Prayers, Bruce & Cathy Langstaff

  4. My deepest condolences to the family. My prayers will be with each and everyone of her boys and their families that God will grant them the comfort and strength during this sad time in the loss of your Mother. She always put others before her and will be missed by all who knew her and loved her. She is now with the Lord in a better place than here where He has made a new home just for her. May God Bless.
