To all of the families: So sorry to hear of your mom’s passing but you will have solace in knowing your mom and dad are united again. They were always a constant duo here on earth! Your mom was such a wonderful person that just filled us with happiness whenever we spoke with her......smiles and positivity. I feel privileged to have been her neighbour twice actually....once in Kincardine Twp. Once in Huron Twp. You girls were her pride and joy and then came son-in-laws and grandchildren. You will have so many wonderful memories to help in these trying times. My thoughts and prayers are extended to you.
Sincerely Joan Kirkham

To Joanie, Betty Ann & Families: Our sincere condolences on the passing of your Mom & Grandma. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time of the loss of your loved one. Your Mom and Dad were excellent neighbours. It was always a joy seeing and talking with them. Your Mom was a beautiful, happy, kind & caring person. She always wore a smile no matter where she was. Your Mom will be sadly missed by all who knew her. You will always have memories. Beautiful memories are forever.

"Memories are timeless Treasures in the Heart"

The tide recedes,
but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand,
The sun goes down,
but gentle warmth still lingers in the land.
The music stops,
and yet it echoes on in sweet refrains.
For every joy that passes,
something beautiful remains.

Pat, John, Michael & Kim Holder

Condolences to your family. I remember many good times visiting at your house, with Joan as a teen. Your mom was a great mom, and there were always a lot of laughs at your house.
