Thinking of you, Barb, Donna, Colleen, and Stacey, and remembering times at church and family gatherings. Your mum has always been a part of my life, and I have thought of all of you many times as I looked out my bedroom window at our farm, from which I can see “your” farm. Although we did not meet often in these past years, your mum’s sparkling eyes, friendly smile, time for conversation, and example of strong spirit will always remain with me.

Since hearing of Maxine’s passing, I have been recalling memories of growing up with our farms next to each other and the many interactions our families had, including the annual New Year’s Eve card parties at your home. Maxine is my God-mother so I always felt a special connection with her. I trust your fond memories will help ease the loss you feel. Our deepest condolences.
