My thoughts are with all of the family at this time. Though it is a time of sadness now, the precious memories of time shared, during a life well lived, will last much longer and will comfort you.

From: Janet Pritchard
Relation: Myrna

Myrna, it is hard to put into words all that I am feeling. Your mom was special in so many ways! I loved spending time with her enjoying a coffee and learning how to quilt, how to crochet, how to grow incredible sweet peas…she always had time for me! Andrew and Allison’s favourite quilts to snuggle up in to watch TV were the ones your mom crocheted for them. In one of your mom’s many Christmas cards, she gave the children little pineapple ornaments. Each ornament was adorned with embrodery floss; blue for Andrew, pink for Allison. Each Christmas since the ornaments have hung on our tree and, like all of our decorations, have a story to tell. These are a few of the memories I have of your mother and how she made my life and the lives of my chrildren richer. My thoughts are with you and your family on Wednesday as you celebrate and remember her life and her accomplishments.

From: Syd and Bev Cooper
Relation: friends mother
