John, Liz and family,

Please accept my deepest sympathy for your Mom's passing, she was such a lovely lady. When I would visit my parents, Gloria and Maurice, with my sons, they always had to see your parents. Steven was the proud recipient of one of Doug's hockey cards, to this day he still has it. Craig just loved visiting, he loved being outside watching your Dad fight with squirrels. As sad as this time is there are so many wonderful memories of your Mom and Dad. I'm so glad to have known your Mom and know that she is at peace with you Dad.

John and Liz, we are very sorry for the loss of your Mom, she was a lovely lady. We were fortunate to have shared many moments with your Mom and your Dad. We had many great nights playing Rumoli, drinking buttermilk, Baileys and learning your Moms competitive streak! The carport was our shared space where many great talks and laughs were had. We shared many meals and your parents were always great at sharing Marge's wonderful fudge with us. Throughout the years we stayed in touch and had some very long conversations keeping us all engaged in each other's families lives. We will dearly miss your Mom, we both loved her very much.

Love Gloria and Maurice St.Onge

John and Liz. My thoughts and prayers will be with you as you bid goodbye to my aunt. I have wonderful memories of her throughout my life. When I called her, she was always cheerful. She will be happy in joining her Howie. Best Regards Gail
