Sending you love and prayers for comfort at this sad time from Connecticut! Mrs. de Boer (or “Cathy, Donna and Sharon’s mom”, as she will always be to me) holds a special place in my heart and is part of my favourite childhood memories. Who could ever forget my attempt at water skiing? Mrs. de Boer made everyone feel welcome, every event more fun and every child (of every age) feel loved. Her spirit lives on in her family. Love to you all.

When I think of Ann, the first thought is how much she loved Art and her family. It’s over 20 years since we worked together, but I’ve always enjoyed the Christmas letters and catching up on the family news. You’re all in my thoughts and prayers.
