My deepest sympathy to all the family at this difficult time. Lillian was a great neighbour and friend for over 61 years.
I have good memories for all the afternoon teas we shared which included Horace in the later years and will miss her.

Dear Greg & Diane, and the rest of the family. Our deepest condolences at the loss of your Mom. She was another wonderful "Brooklin Mom". I still hold fond memories of meeting her at the post office where our conversations would always drift out onto the sidewalk, then to the car, and then often start up again at the bank for another " short (long) chat". Amazing that so many of our mom's all passed at the ripe young age of 93. May the wonderful memories of her help you through this difficult time.
With Our Heartfelt Sympathies,
Don & Rosemarie Fishley.

Sincere condolences to you Kathleen and your entire family. You Mom was always such a sweet and helpful lady when we went into Short’s Pharmacy. And on many an occasion in my adult years, I would run into her in the grocery store and she always knew who I was, and we would have a little chat and she would bring me up to date on the family. My thoughts are with you. Christine Smith (Richardson)

Kathleen, Edwin, Andrea, Greg and family - Angie told me about the passing of your mom. I am so sorry to hear about this. The picture is exactly how I remember her. A loving person and always a cheerful smile. Keep close the many memories you share of her, those memories can never be taken away. Send me an email sometime Kathleen and lets reconnect.
