To you all,
I am sorry to hear the sad news about your mother. As a member of St. James, I have known her for many years
and also as a neighbour as you lived around the corner from us when you were on Elizabeth Court.
Unfortunately, I will be in Ohio this weekend so am unable to attend the memorial service.
I will be thinking of you,
Jill Regoeczi and family.
Dear Rosemary and Pierre, and all of the Eden family. You were fortunate to have such kind and loving parents, and they were fortunate to have you. Our warmest wishes to you all, Catherine and Chris.
Peace to all the family, and special wishes to David. Mrs. Eden was a lovely person and a wonderful mother.
All the best,
