    It was with much sadness that I heard of the passing of Aunt Teresa. The last of our Dad's (Garnet) siblings. Like many of my siblings and Cape Breton cousins I too remember fondly the many vacations that she along with the boys spent in Mill Creek. The many conversations around our parents kitchen table with the tea and lunches were always fun to listen to. Later when I moved to Halifax I would visit her with my family. Always a great visit in her home. At this difficult time guys please take comfort in her life well lived and all the memories you all made together. Our deepest condolences, Roy & Nancy Marsh

Myself and my sisters remember her fondly as our smiling Aunt who sometimes brought our come from away cousins home to Cape Breton on summer vacations. She was the last one of the Marsh clan and will never be forgotten by all of us.
