Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • My condolences old friends, Marguerite and Tahirih. Such fond memories spending time at the family home on Hugo in Winnipeg. Marian was such a lovely lady and her home was a safe warm refuge for a new comer to this country. The last time I saw her was back in 1980/81on a teaching break from Nigeria, a long time ago yes, but she was not forgotten and won't be. A special lady.
