    Oje liebe Janna, wirklich gute Rezension. Ich bin jetzt nur echt zwiegespalten, einerseits hatte ich es nicht auf dem Schirm und wär wahrscheinlich nicht auf die Idee gekommen es zu lesen, aber andererseits bin ich irgendwie neugierig geworden, da es dich so geschockt hat. Wie ich es wohl auffassen würde. Schwierig, wirklich schwierig. Liebe Grüße Nicole

    Dear Uncle Jo and family

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your wife and mother. She was a lovely lady and and I enjoyed meeting my Tante Janny and Uncle Jo when you visited me in Alberta years ago. It was so special also to reconnect again in Nova Scotia in 2000. My thoughts are with you all at this most difficult time.

    Sincerely
    Ruby Zeggelaar

    Hello John and Family,

    I’m sorry you have lost Janna. It was a pleasure to help to look after her. I have fond memories of her taking other residents by the hand for a walk. It was also a pleasure to get to know you John. You were such a good husband to her. Thank you for your cheery outlook and all you candies. You will both be missed at the Villa.
