    Garry, Gail & families,
    I’m so sorry for your loss. I have many memories of your mother from when I was a child. Even as an adult she always recognized me & she never failed to ask about my dad!
    You are all in my thoughts & prayers,
    Cathy Clarke Treiber

    Garry, Donna and families,
    We were so very sorry to hear about Pearls passing. We enjoyed many a back alley chat with both your Mom and Dad when we were neighbours (we were on 16th Ave & they on 26th Street). They were like the neighbourhood watch keeping the block nuisance free. In particular I remember early one morning when Mrs. Ruff had clearly had enough and was out in her housecoat banging together 2 cookie sheets in attempt to get rid of a bunch of cawing crows! She will be missed. Big Hugs.
    Maggie and Robin
