Sympathy to the family
Posted by Elaine Lawrence Mason (Family friend from Embro) On Saturday, February 2, 2019
About 5 years ago I met Mary having lunch with a group of ladies in Stratford. During our visit, Mary was pleased to tell me that her first date with Willard was attending a wiener roast at the farm of my parents (Wilbur and Marjory Lawrence)on the Embro Road. The beginning of a wonderful partnership.

Mary was a lovely lady and I was thrilled to see her looking so well!

You will miss her dearly. My sincere sympathy to the family.
