Dear Neil, Linda, Dean and Families.
I will always cherish the memory of my visit with your Mom last August long weekend. We went to Ryan’s ball-hockey tournament; shared the same nervousness every time the ball was at our end; stood together to applaud each goal. Saturday evening , we shared a bottle of wine and watched the Lawrence Welk show. What a special visit. I felt so welcome.
Eileen’s courageous and positive attitude in her approach to her illness , was an inspiration to me .
I am blessed to have known her!
Please know I am thinking of you all!
Brenda Oldham, Calgary
