  1. Sue sorry to hear that your Mom passed. The people from the greatest generation are all leaving. I also lost my Mom this year, she was 92. I will keep your family in my prayers.

  3. Dear Sue and Mike,

    My condolences on the loss of your mother. Mike and I sometimes exchanged stories about our Moms. (Mine is 96 years old.) I hope her passing was peaceful. Pam Doherty (Rtd CPD)

  4. Dear Sue,
    Mike and I are sorry to learn of your mother’s passing. What a blessing that she was able to be at home with you! I remember you telling me that she lived with you and Patricia. To live to age 94 was a full, long life for her! May God give you peace and bring you comfort.

  5. Mike and Sue,
    Your mom has been like a second mom to me for 22 years since my mom passed. She has had many challenges the past three years, yet she remained alert and resilient. I so enjoyed her weekly Sunday dinners and her love of a glass of port wine. I am so happy I was able to talk to her on Christmas Eve this past weekend before things changed.
    May fond memories of her give you comfort in the years ahead

Leave your condolences
