I am so sorry that I did not hear about your mom's passing in time to go to the wake and funeral. My brother Greg and I would both have liked to show our respect and affection for your mom. She was a wonderful neighbor who turned intro a great friend to our mom June Davidson. I don't think I've ever met a sweeter lady than Laine. I believe mom and Laine shared a love of Bingo. Unfortunately the last time I saw your Mom was in the Almonte hospital. Our deepest condolences. She will be missed.

I was saddened to read of Ghislaine's passing. One short month ago we met briefly and had a great chat. Mrs. Ritchie was a very special lady who opened her home up to many teenagers in the early 80's. I like to think she enjoyed having us all crash at her house. Perhaps it was peace of mind for her knowing where her children were. She would always come to the craft bazaar at Clayton hall, never concerned if she sold anything. She said she felt so comfortable and welcome there. It was also a great time to catch up with everyone. Trusting that she has been reunited with Ros and they are officially "On Tour" I will miss running into her and seeing that precious smile & sparkling eyes. I am very sorry that I can't be there in person but please know I am thinking of you all and sending you hugs and strength to get you through the next few days. Darlene MacDonald
