I realize this is very late, but I was checking on something in the Sherbrooke Record and I saw death notice of your Mom. I send my sincere condolences. Reading it brought back many wonderful memories of times spent at your Mom and Dad's home in Cookshire. They were always very welcoming to me. Your Dad and Mom are together now and enjoying eternity together.
