  2. Dearest Jennifer: Your Mom Beth was an outstanding human being. She was more than just a neighbour. We valued her expertise on so many things. Her humour, and her telling it matter of fact, the way she spoke of past times … her way of telling stories was truly unique. The love and interest she showed myself, my husband, my sons and my mom are truly cherished forever in our hearts. It will be these past conversations and our recent NewYear’s eve dinner that will make forever memories. All our love, Charlie/Connie Grant and sons Edward/Andrew and Donna Edwards.
