My condolences Deirdre. I fondly remember you mom when I was a candy striper nearly 50 years ago at the old SGH. She was always such a sweet heart but expected everyone to meet her own high standards.. I was lucky to have known her.

Miriam’s family,

I doubt you will remember me, but I remember you when you were kids, just having moved to Sarnia, when tour Dad worked for .Dow Chamical. Your Mom and I stayed connected for many years, and whenever I visited family in Sarnia, after moving west in 1961, we would have lunch together. She was a good friend in those days. I am sure you will hold memories of her in your own ways.

My condolences during these days.
