When I think of your mom and dad, I can feel the rich quality of their lives shining through. When we were all so much younger I benefited so deeply from their kindness and example. I have carried them as pillars in my house. Now, at my advancing age, I am amazed at the strength of my abode and the near fellowship of those who make it strong. I feel your sadness, and I live in hope of rich conversations yet to be, whispers and laugher beyond the spell of death.
Sorry in the Passing of your Dear Mom. Our Prayers and Thoughts are with you nd your Family at this difficult time for you.
Greetings Lorna and family:
Great memories of your Mom and Dad. May the strength and comfort of our faith be with you!

Our condolences to your family.
I have fond memories of Stanley and Florence McQueen when they were at Fort Massey in Halifax and after their retirement and in particular their visits at my parents’ home in Halifax and Bedford. They were lovely people and I am thankful to have known them.
Dear Margaret, Jørgen and I are so sorry to hear about your loss. Our thoughts are with you.
It was with sadness I read the news. Such a special, beautiful lady, and I’m so happy we spent some time together. Her help with my research on our Chisholm family history was invaluable, and we both so much enjoyed her memories and stories. To Florence’s family, my cousins, you are in my thoughts. Love, Marlene

Lorna, we were so very sorry to learn of your mother’s death through the kindness of Leslie McLean. We both have good memories of the time your parents were at Fort Massey. I remember your mother’s wonderful smile. I can see her face in my mind as I write this. She was always cheerful and interested in everyone. She was very kind to our daughter, Sarah, perhaps because she was present at Sarah’s baptism and here at our home afterwards, holding her with pleasure. She will be truly missed by you and all your family. Sincerely, Alasdair and Carol
So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. As my CGIT leader for 3 years,I feel privileged to have her be a mentor, a leader,a friend and a huge influence on my life. In her quiet way,she managed to get the utmost respect of a teenager with ideas of her own. She steered my perspective in many positive directions. I am sure she will rest in peace in her beloved Cape Breton.
To the MacQueen Family
Our most sincere sympathy at this time. You Mom and Dad were two incredible individuals who gave selflessly of their time and talent. Kind, generous in word and deed. Faithful in spirit and in friendship. So many many fond memories of days gone by, Both of your folks visited my grandmother regularly which she so appreciated. I recall after she passed away delivering a special chair to their home in Bible Hill – it was one your Dad always sat on when he paid Nanna a visit. Your Mom was ever a lady and strong supporter of your Dad, the Church and all with whom she came in contact. Rest well knowing the impact left on the lives of so many.
With fondest regards
James and Kari Robertson
