Your lovely mom
Posted by Gaye McCartney (friend) On Monday, August 28, 2017
So sorry to hear of the passing of your beautiful mom. I remember our wonderful times in Wasaga and sitting around your kitchen table waiting for your mom to pull that beautiful loaf of homemade bread out of the oven so we could slather on the peanut butter! Your lovely mom taught me how to crochet. I was in awe over that beautiful pineapple pattern she did,and her tatting. She had such a beautiful smile, and was so full of love. May your memories help carry you through this difficult time.
