So sorry to hear of Mary’s passing, her and I go back a long way when we attended Business College in Calgary in the 1950’s we met through a mutual friend and remained friends since. She came to visit me this Summer and it was like old times again. I am going to miss hearing from her. Thank God for the lovely friendship that we had. Always remembered with heartfelt thoughts. God Bless you Mary always.
Our most sincere condolences for your loss. In such difficult times, how comforting it is to know that God feels our pain and sustains us when we call to him (Psalmes55:22).
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
To all the Cravens, I am so sorry to hear of Mothers passing, I just heard now. She was not only my landlady, she was my second Mom. Sheila, Tom and Alan, I am so sorry. God Bless you all.
