    We were so sorry to hear about the loss of your Mom. She was a great sports’ coach to me (she especially helped me with onset frostbite while playing hockey). Your Mom and Dad were great friends of my parents for many years. In later years, when I met her at my parents’ home, she was so happy and enthusiastic to see me. She was a life long friend to my parents and to me. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. She was a very special lady!

    She was the sweetest Walmart greeter I ever met! She had a lot of spunk and common sense. She was kind and thoughtful and always had a soft spot for Abagail. We are all a little deprived now that this dear soul has left us. Our most sincere condolences.

    Dear Shirley,Glen, Ronald and Nancy and families,
    We were so sad to hear of the loss of your mom and our Aunt Ruth. She loved nothing more than her grand and great grandchildren. She also loved seeing her entire family, even us the extended ones, all in the same place ... which was often her home. She had such a great laugh and a wonderful smile to boot. My children always felt special around her. We will miss her and will certainly talk of her antics around our Christmas dinner table.
