Nancy Greg sorry for the loss of your mother memories come to me as a young boy heading to school Sir Charles Tupper and Cornwallis there was a gang of us at that time , When my family moved from the end of Cobury Rd to Campbell Drive iI remember coming to your home for lunch once and awhile as the walk was too far in those days your mum always put on a nice spread I am thankful for memories and I am sure I will see you both in the next few days

I have too many stories, too many memories of happy times (including once when I was 4 when I "ran away" across the street to the sanctuary of Aunt Jean's house when Mum was too busy or too tired to entertain me). I simply can't explain my childhood in particular, or my life in general, without her. Love, always.... Hugh

Dear Nancy and Greg, Martha and I were sad to hear that your mother passed away but at the same time so happy that she managed her life in her own way right up to the end. I have so many good memories of Aunt Jean from the time I was a child on Waegwoltic Avenue. It was a stroke of great good luck that our families lived across the street from one another - something for which I am very grateful.

Dear Nancy and Greg, What fond memories I will forever have of Aunt Jean! I am happy that as I child I saw her talents for creating things with her hands :. from cooking, decorating cakes, to sewing beautiful clothes to wrapping presents so beautifully that we didn't want to open them! As an adult I enjoyed her wit, her opinions, and her interest in our lives and those of my children! Recently we had great visits by phone as well as when I got back to N.S . I will miss her and certainly want to share my condolences with you. Love, Wendy
