    Our sincerest condolences to you all on the loss of your dear mother Nancy, a lovely woman in all respects. She was a great match for your father Ozzie, a colleague with whom I worked for many years.

    My thoughts and wishes are with Nancy and Ozzie’s family. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend the celebration of Nancy’s life on Saturday. My memories of the two of them are very bright and happy. It was obvious that they created and maintained a very loving family. I met them when Ozzie joined the staff at Mohawk and we maintained a relationship long after we had both retired. I miss our meetings in the local Food Basics as we both lived just down the road from it. Just remember the happy times – I know there were many.
    My thoughts are with you.

    The obituary for Nancy makes it clear that she had a beautiful spirit. She will be missed by her many friends and relatives. May the Lord sustain them all during this time of sorrow. Stephen Ralph Boswell, Los Angeles, California.

    To the Boswell family,

    As I am unable to attend the celebration of Nancy’s life, I would like to leave a message honouring her. My name is Corinne Ethier, and I worked with your father Ozzie for many years at Mohawk College. I was fortunate to meet Nancy many times, and always felt how much of a lady she was, and respected her for her love of her family and for putting up with Ozzie’s antics! Having attended Ozzie’s celebration last year, I know that you will share your love and memories at the celebration, and I am very sorry to be out of the country at the time. All the best to you all, and may your memories support you at this time. With love and respect, Corinne Ethier

    What a beautiful picture of your mom. We spent many fun times together – always loads of laughs. She loved being a mom, grandmother and great grandmother and was amazing in her memory of all of your birthdates. Whenever we went out on an adventure, she would be picking up something for one of you. She truly enjoyed life and I will certainly miss our times together. May you find comfort in all of the memories you share.

    Sending you hugs and my deepest sympathies. Your parents sure left us a wonderful legacy in all that they created. What a lovely family who were so very kind to me when I was a wee lass. And I am ever so adoring of you Judy and all of the clan. It is so hard to be an adult orphan. I am often comforted by this Irish piece of wisdom… hope you like it too.

    “Death is the heartache no one can heal,
    Memories are keepsakes no one can steal”

    Cherish the memories and know you are in our thoughts!
