    A beautiful loving soul, now flying with the angels! I first met Mary through my sister Ella & Lin (Mary’s brother) when we lived in Toronto in the late 1960s and 70s but never saw her again until 1994. She was that very same warm, smiling & caring person as I knew her to be back then. Cathy & family, Ed & Sylvia, Lin & Ella, my sincere condolences to you all in your loss. Fly in peace Mary – you have earned well, your angel wings.

    So sorry to hear of Aunt Mary’s death. My deepest condolences to you and your family. Uncle Leo and Aunt Mary had visited us on Freshwater Road a number of times and Dad and Mom, for their 25th Anniversary, were gifted a ticket to see them in Ontario as Uncle Leo was Dad’s best man at his wedding. We do hold on to memories as you can see..

      Thank you Ria and Ida! I was thinking that I’d have to write you when I got home. I loved hearing mom’s stories about their childhood. You kind words are appreciated.
