Dear Jane,
I was very sorry to hear of Paul's passing. You and Paul were some the first people I met when I began my year as an exchange student in Dundas in September 1981. Labour day weekend up at the cottage with you and your parents was a very special time. It was lovely catching up with you both in Kincardine in July 2019. How time flies. Thinking of you and sending you lots of love.

Dear Jane,
I was so very sorry to read about Paul's passing recently. You and Paul were one of the first couples I met when I moved back to Kincardine in 2004, and I was so impressed with your involvement in the community. Such a tremendous loss, and I hope your beloved pets will help you treasure the memories. I will miss seeing Paul at his vendor table in Market in the Park.
Take good care of yourself. Stay Safe.
Catherine Kennedy
