Reg and Val, we offer our condolences on the passing of your loved one. I will always remember the diet coke episode with fond memories of her. Thinking of you both. Hugs!

I was just thinking a couple of days ago that I should call “our Mary” as I hadn’t heard from her in a while. She used to be on our Thurs. Grocery Run and was such a gracious lady. After she moved to Lakeview, I went over and got her list and did grocery shopping a couple of times and she was so appreciative. She was very loved by all of us and it was a real pleasure to have known her. ps: She was so excited when Reg & his wife built their new home close to her Choquette address. My sincere condolences to you all. You had a great Mom and Grand Mom.

Dear Linda, Please accept our tender thoughts as we learn of your mother’s passing. I remember how she always loved to sew, and has passed this talent to you. As you do some sewing now, may you think of her teachings, struggles and tenderness. Please pass our thoughts of her loss to Reg and Valerie. We always remember going to Nelson to work on the chapel there and Valerie would come out to talk to us, and tell us “What quiet neighbors came from the church yard. We missed them when they moved away.” Take care. With much love, Larry & Barbara
