Dear Parr family: It is with heartfelt sympathy that I extend my condolences to your family. I had the opportunity to visit with Florence and Karl several times when they lived in London on Southdale Road and always had a lovely visit with them both. They were a very warm and hospitible couple. They are together again and at Peace.

Sorry to hear of her passing. Although we hadn’t been in touch for a while, I will always remember how kind both she and Karl were and how they often treated me like a member of the family. I still remember the fun times at their cottage near Restoule.
