Thanks for the memories Mom. Love Kelley


Kelley, I just found out today that your mom passed away and I am so sad. Ever since we met at university in 1965 we had been friends and had so many fun times especially in residence and living with Linda one summer. I always enjoyed popping in to visit when I was in Manitoba. I send you my deepest sympathy. She was a wonderful person and I will miss her deeply.
