  • I am very sorry to hear of Mrs. Van B's Passing. I am sure that the happy memories that I have of this lovely lady are shared by a many others.. The welcome we received as friends of George and other family members always made everyone feel most welcome - even after some very impromptue last minute parties. Condolences and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. She lived a long and very fruitful life, but it is still difficult to let go of your loved ones. Most sincerely, Don Nolin, Victoria, BC (Ma's son, corner store @ Cathedale and St Jean Baptiste) - Posted by: Don Nolin (Friend) on: Jul 30, 2005
