We are so very sad to read this notice of your mother's passing away. Although we have not been in touch for a long time you are always remembered fondly. Both of our families knew your family long before Al and I met or married. My parents and yours played cards together in Ridgetown and Al's parents met yours at Rondeau Park. Many happy memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you- love from Al and Margy Granken
