Thinking of you and your family, Susan, in the recent loss of your dear Mother. Although it has been many years, I remember her easy smile and cheerful disposition. She was a dear friend of my Mom’s (Beulah Cummins). With sincere sympathy.
Our deep sympathy to Sue and Charles and the rest of your family. Beth was a wonderful partner for Bob in what turned out to be his last couple years of life and a warm , thoughtful presence in our family as step-parent and step- grandparent. Although we are not able to join you for the funeral service, our thoughts are with you in support through this difficult time.
Susan, Charles and your families, I am so sorry for the loss of your mother/grandmother. She was a very special part of our family as we grew up across the road in Millgrove. My prayers are with you as you journey through this difficult time.
Ah, Mary Elizabeth, this note is for you and those nearest and dearest to you who remember your vitality and spirit of adventure. You were always welcoming and accepting, made many occasions to bring our family together, and by your life’s example, showed us anything is possible. A gutsy traveller, a comforting companion, and always so keen to engage anyone in your path. As your niece, I remember your patience as a child, your welcoming smile and in your last days, your attention to our visits. Ever the interested hostess, you listened to my reciting familiar poems, talk of days long gone and present, and then graciously see me to the elevator door when it was time to say good bye. I have learned from you that as you lived, you have died; with determination, grace, acceptance, and peace. I have sensed your spirit has lingered here for just a little while, and now, because it gives me comfort, I’d like to think you might join your sister-in-law, Sheila, and dance behind the heavenly moon. Thank you, my Auntie Mary.
Mrs. Munn was one of my favorite teachers. She taught me in the early 60’s. Im so glad that she had a long full life. My prayers are with you.
Sincere sympathy to Susan and Charles. Bob and I enjoyed the friendship of Mary and Murray many years ago, Doreen Stokes.(Millgrove United Church 1962-1968)
