Dear Martin, Jean and families,
We remember your Mom as a fiesty, funny and caring lady who always made us laugh. She had such a great wit, and was never afraid to share her opinion, whether or not we agreed with her! We loved that about her, and will remember her that way. It seems so unfair that someone so full of life had to spend their last years as she did. I was hoping to get to the Celebration of Life but we are harvesting so I was unable to get away. It would have been great to reconnect! Our sincere condolences to all of you.
Brian and Linda
