From: Suzanne Robinson (Champagne)

Sympathies to you Marcella and Ron. Have very good memories of your mom and dad driving into our farm yard on many occasions for a visit on a Sunday afternoon. Always looked forward to those visits. Will always remember and cherish them.

From: Elsie & Terry LaBoucane
Relation: Friend

Louise & family; our deepest condolences to you all during this difficult time. Our thoughts & prayers are with you.

From: Wanda Guest
Relation: Neighbour

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family members. Have many good memories of the visits we had at the lake. When your dad was alive they would drive out fairly often and stop at the house for a short visit. My Don always appreciated it so much as he was often not feeling well. I would often see them at their lot when on my walks and we would have a small chat. Also had lots of ball toss games with your mom at Extendicare. May the memories surround you like a warm blanket.

From: Phil Gonneville/ Carol and family
Relation: Nephew

My deepest sympathies to Marcella, Ron and family. May she rest in peace. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get away but my thoughts and prayers are with you all
