Tribute wall - a place to share your memories and condolences
For the family,
My husband worked with Bernie at EC&M Electric. We met Elsie and Bernie at the Kensington Legion a few times and have lovely chats with Bernie and your Mother, Elsie, a lovely caring lady. We talked about getting together to play cards but…..time went by, my husband, Doug, developed health problems and the visit never happened. We were glad to see them happy together.
Sorry for your loss. You will miss her. May lovely family memories ease your sorrow.
