Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
I was so very fortunate to be right across the lane from Ron and Moira where we had both moved to Transcona . We had so many good times summer and winter with basement parties in the winter after digging out the lane from the snow storms and barbecues in summer. Ron and Moira were the best possible friends and neighbours and it is heart breaking to hear of Moira’s, she was such brave woman fighting through several bouts of cancer as early as the seventies. My condolences to hers sons Cory and Adam and all the family. I was so blessed to have known your Mum. - Posted by: Alan Cochrane (Friend and ex neighbour ) on: Aug 04, 2022
