  1. Dear Carol you have been a great friend and neighbour for a very long time and l am grateful for this. This has been a long journey for you and your family and l won’t you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this very difficult time. l got to know your mom over the years when she stated doing our income tax l can remember l would have to call her over something regarding my tax and l would say hi Mrs. Rhea its Perianne and she would say don’t call Mrs. Rhea call me Shirley ,Mrs. Rhea makes me feel old . From that point on the ice was broken and over the years l got to know a wonderful woman with a big heart willing to help anyone.
    Love Dennis and Perianne

  2. So very sorry to hear of this Carol and family. I know how strong a woman your Mom was and a great influence she had on you and your siblings. This shows when I see how strong of a woman you are. You have told us many stories of your Mother that I feel I know her and I see her in you. Hugs my friend.

  4. So sorry to hear about your Mom… Aunt Shirley was always kind to me and took me in after school when I was younger while my dad worked at the gas station till he was done. I didnt see as much of her as my other Aunts and Uncles but i always remembered her as the prettiest lady in the room when I did see her and her laugh. Wish I had known her better so I could have heard some of her family stories with her siblings growing up.

  5. so very sorry to read about my aunt shirley’s passing; she was known to us as ‘tootsie’! although i hadnt seen her since my own mom’s funeral, i always had warm thoughts of her and her family. when i see her picture, i see my dad’s [tootsie’s brother don] eyes…….
