Diane sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. She was a sweet and loving Mother. I remember working with her at Marshall's, she always worked in the children's department. I remember our trip to Newfoundland and meeting her parents. My sister, Janet, and I wanted you to know we are thinking of you and you are in our prayers. Just saw the notice and if I had known would have went to the wake.

I'm so going to miss Dallas' greeting, "Oh, hello, Pastor!" She was a wonderful woman, tough as nails and as kind and wonderful as they come, and she dearly loved her homeland of Newfoundland. I will truly miss her, and I hope someday to visit Port a Basque in her honour!
