    Hi Bill and Jan:

    I was saddened to hear of your Mom’s death, Bill. Please know that I hold both of you in my prayerful heart.

    I will not be at the Annual Meeting of BC Conference, but I know that you will find much love and support from that community.

    During our high school years, I was in your Beach Drive home on many occasions. My most vivid memory of your mom was that she always made me feel welcome which was accompanied by her generous smile.
    Brenda and I extend our condolences to the entire family. Loosing a matriarch is not easy so will will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.

    I will always remember my “Auntie” Mary’s warm smile and generous spirit. She embodied grace and gentleness and I admired her sharp wit and wicked sense of humour. Mary was an important and supportive part of my youth and I extend heartfelt sympathy to her treasured family. While she will be greatly missed, she is now at peace with “Uncle” Greenie. xo
