  4. Diane, Julie, Sandra and all of your families.

    So sorry to hear about your Mother, Grandmother. We had a lot of fun times with your Mother and also your Dad, especially at Mitchell’s Bay many years ago. Judy and I had a nice visit with her a few months ago and intended to get back in sometime this month of Dec, but I have been real busy trying to fit health issues into my life this last year and a half, so social life is not always too accommodating. Treasure all your fun memories. Hugs Pat and Grant, Judy and Nelson, Tracy and Shawn, Greg and Georgina, Olivia and Sydney.

  5. Our condolences to you Sandra, Rick and family. Losing a loved one is always hard, but the plan God has for her is the eternal plan. Love , strength and peace to endure the next days, weeks and months. Love Mel and Donna DeBoer

  6. Sad news about the passing of Aunt Gwen. I have very fond memories of her. I will always remember the wonderful times we had with our aunts and uncles as kids, as the whole “clan” got together for all birthdays and all holidays. And I will never forget that house on Dundas Street. So many wonderful memories. Remember the time Uncle Jack somehow talked everyone into going to that mouse and spider infested log cabin on the Ottawa River in Stonecliffe? That was on the Thanksgiving weekend in 1968 or 1969. 16 of us in that place with no running water!

  7. Just a few minutes ago I read that Mrs. Kuyper has passed on. I got to know her while volunteering at Riverview Gardens. Sadly, I missed seeing her and her daugher(s) prior to moving from Chatham in late November. I always enjoyed seeing and speaking with Mrs. Kuyer and it saddens me to hear of her passing. My sincere condolences to the entire family….she was a great person !
