From: Donna McGhie-Richmond
Relation: Family friend

Dear Stan and famlly,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom, Nellie and your Dad were good family friends of my parents, Rose and Bob McGhie. In later years when I was visiting my parents, we would run into your Mom at the Nelson Mall or on Baker Street and always stop to say hi and chat for a bit. Your Mom was easily recognized – she kept her youthful looks and spirit, which was remarkable. She passed one year to the day after our Dad, Bob, on August 21st. She’s at peace.
Take care,

From: Bonnie McGhie
Relation: Neighbor

I’m sorry for you’re Loss Stan. Remember we had a Fort in the Bush just behind you’re Parents Place. You would remember us Bonnie, Bobbie, Donna, Karen and Cheryl McGhie. Our Father Bob McGhie died exactly 1 year to the Day of Nellie’s Death. They will ALL be Reaquainted in Heaven. Take Care Stan and Family.

From: Bernadine Swetlikoe

Stan & Family, So sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. She was a very sweet loving lady. We of course spoke to her often when she was at KLGH in the same ward as her good friend Laura. It was nice to hear them reminisce about their days working at the Mount. May she rest in peace.
