Sympathies to all of you - Charles, Joan, Marilyn, Barbara & Jeff - on the loss of your mom, and to your families who became her children. What I remember about your Mom is her laugh....was she ever without a smile?! Losing a parent is sad and hard no matter how long we get to spend with them, so my condolences to you. I know you will have many precious loving memories of her that will stay with you and keep her memory close. God's blessings at this time of bittersweet sorrow. Take care.

It is with sadness we heard of the passing of Edna - a lovely lady who we admired very much. She was a good friend when we lived in MacNutt and we always enjoyed visiting with her after we moved away, whenever the occasion arose. She was a faithful and hard worker in the church and community and she had such a delightful sense of humour.
Our deepest sympathy on your loss. May your precious memories of her help to comfort you at this time.
Sincerely - Jim and Irene Calanchie and family.
