Dear Leah,
A passing of a parent comes with such a strong cocktail of emotions – love, grief, appreciation for the foundation they’ve built for you and shock at the emptiness created by their void. Take care of yourself during this time delicate time and know that we are all thinking of you and your family.

My sympathies to Terry and Scott and Leah.
Sharon was a lovely fun lady.
I remember many great times with Sharon and Terry in Dubai.
They lived right across the street from us in CBV.
I remember the carpools and going to hockey.
We had to share the you umatic video tape player 1week each family.
Getting together when our husbands were working on MCP offshore.
I would be just dropping off something to Sharon and 30 minutes later we are still talking in her driveway!
She was a wonderful lady and so athletic and into sports I really envied that about her.
You will be missed and I’m sure your family has wonderful memories of you.
Sincere sympathy from Carol and Tracy and Ryan Murphy


Sending condolences to Terry and family in this time of sadness. Alvin and I were very happy to have had the opportunity to attend the Bob Anderson reunion for a couple of years and reconnect.
