Richard and Nelson family, so sorry to hear of the loss of your Mom. She was a very special lady. Every time I seen her in town when I visited from Newfoundland, we would have wonderful conversations. Without a doubt I know she loved you all very much and was very proud of you all. It is very difficult to lose a Mom as I lost my mom at Christmas this year. Hopefully knowing that our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this very difficult time will help you in some way. She will never be truly gone for she will live on through you, her children, her grandchildren and great grandchildren. God bless

To Richard, Trudy, Doug and families. We are so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. She was a special lady always ready with a smile and up for a visit. She was hard working and straight shooting. She told it like it was and she could out work most of us. We admired that about her. Whatever soothes your spirit, comforts your soul and brings you peace, that’s what you’re all wished at this sad time. Our deepest sympathies.

Our sympathy to all of you in your loss.
