Our deepest sympathy to all of you in the loss of one very dear and precious lady. I, Harvey, well recall your mother from the various functions and services at both the Temple & Grace Baptist Churches years ago and so vividly recall her working at Pinecrest Bible Camp in the Cypress Hills each year cooking for all of us at summer camp. My wife and I were fortunate enough to spend some times with her at the Haven of Rest complex while visiting our mother Hilda many times when we got to Medicine Hat for our visits. What a great loss for us on earth but what a glorious gain in Heaven. We’re sorry we didn’t pass on our sympathy before but we were totally unaware of you mother’s passing until now. God Bless you all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and we share in your sorrows.
