Ken, sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I’ve thought of you and your Mom many times over the years. Your Mom was a family friend for many years, and the two of you stayed with our family (Bill and Jessie Gibbons) one winter. You were just a toddler then. Your Mom was devoted to you. She was a nice lady, and had a great sense of humour, easy laugh. May many happy memories comfort you at this time. (Sorry, I won’t be able to attend your Mom’s service, as I’m away that week) Gwen (Gibbons) Tweed - Posted by: Gwen (Gibbons) Tweed (Family friend) on: Feb 29, 2020
