My deepest sympathies go out to the family at this difficult time.

My condolences to you all in this difficult time. It seems like just yesterday we were all at Westdale and being scolded by your mom for something or other.
Dear Jeff and family, Louisa , Angela ,Mathew and i would like to send our sincere condolences at this time. I have very fond memories with your Mom and Dad growing up and being in you house and swimming in the pool. Travelling up the mountain in the station wagon to go to one of Daves lacrosse games. You Mother was always warm and inviting to me when i came over, and that was very often. Again we are sorry to hear of your loss.
Our deepest condolonces to all. We remember how welcoming your mother and Diane were whenever we were at the store. Rick says it was always one of his best memories doing the electrical there!
So saddened to learn Ruth had passed. A lovely and most friendly person, she was. We met in the 80’s at the plaza when working at Scotiabank. Several times we met and chatted with her while doing ‘her cards’. She will be missed, condolences to the family ?
To the Waud family,
Please accept my sincere condolences with the loss of your mother. Your Mom was a very friendly and outgoing person, I enjoyed meeting her at the various places stocking the cards after the store was closed. She reminded me often that my husband Bob taught at least one of you at Dalewood School. I am sorry that I am unable to come to her service.
like to offer our sincere condolences to the family
