    Dear Cousins Clay, Sally, Chip and Andy
    I only just saw this very sad news. My condolences to all of you and your families. Aunt Gabby was always so stylish – I have very fond memories of hers and Uncle Chick’s generosity when Peter and I visited Ontario with our young sons (Now in their 30s!) Two of my favourite photos of Alex and Julian were taken at the Holton cottage.
    I know your mother will be missed by many.

    Dear Sally, Chip, Clay and Andy
    Our condolences on the loss of your dear Mother and for the other losses you have suffered and shared.
    I have lovely memories of Aunt Gabby and Uncle Chic ‘playing’ with Mum and Dad in Burlington, at Hawkhill, Lake of Bays and in Barbados. More recently I was grateful for the news she sent me in her Christmas cards. She is sadly missed and fondly remembered.

    I extend my sympathy to the family. I have now included Gwenyth’s passing in my collection of SMITH genealogical research and invite any family member to contact me if they are curious about this connection. Our Smith family is one of the many who can claim their United Empire Loyalist lineage, a fact often unknown to present day descendants. Gloria Oakes, Ancaster, Ontario.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the Holton Family, on the passing of “Gabby”, a wonderful Kerrimuir Road neighbour at The Lake of Bays. She was a lovely lady, who enjoyed beach activities, golf and sailing. She will be missed by all the neighbours. God Bless her.

    Sincerely, all the Lennard Families.

    To Sally and Chip. I am saddened by the news of your mother’s passing! My fond thoughts of Gabby go back to our youth and frequenting the family home in Burlington. She was always so kind, generous and respectful to me, something I will always remember! I send you both, and all the family my sincerest condolences! Rick Pitts
