  2. I was saddened to learn of your loss of June. I had the good fortune of meeting her as part of our work together with the Graves and Repatriation Committee at the Blue Water Bridge. I will always remember June as gentle, positive, fun,thoughtful and so wise. I was truly honoured when June included me in her naming ceremony at Aamjiwnaang.
    She was a lovely person. I feel lucky to have met her.
