  • Heather, James and Rob, my sincere condolences on your Mom’s passing. She was a wonderful neighbor to us when we moved to Charleswood. My Mom helped her with the Beaver scouts shortly after we moved there. I remember the rabbit hutches in your yard and the many long conversations our Moms had over the fence. May she Rest In Peace.
