Murray, Marilyn, Scott and Carly. I was so saddened to hear about the passing of Mrs. McQueen this morning when I arrived at work. I can't help but reflect on the many visits we had with her when living on Normanby St and how she'd always comment on the girls and how fast they were growing. Our thoughts are with you all. Regards, The McGoverns

Dear McQueens, We are very sorry to hear of your loss. I will always remember the summer that I cared for Scott as a baby and frequently went to visit Grandma McQueen. I really enjoyed sitting and chatting with her in the front yard on a sunny day. She will be missed. Cheryl Wolting and family

Murray,Marilyn & all the McQueen families: So sorry to hear of Irene's passing. Such a strong woman & good neighbour[never a shortage of conversation when passing by] My thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

Dear Ron, Janice, Murray and families, Ruth found,on-line, the notice of your mother's recent passing and I want to say how sorry I am. It's only a couple of weeks ago that we were in Mount Forest and I mentioned that I didn't know anything about her and that I really should look her up. Well, I should do things when I think of them and not wait for another time.I have good memories of your mom. She was a hearty and happy woman who helped out at our place a lot after Mom had a stroke in 1966. She baked really good pies and I enjoyed 4H under her leadership. Not to mention all the times I played at your house after school and in the summer. She was always welcoming. We realize that it was quite recent that Wilmer died as well. There aren't many of the 6th of Arthur Township folks left. I hope that you are well otherwise. I am in my last few days of teaching before retiring on June 30. I'm looking forward to a new stage in life and more time with my kids and grandson. Take care. Wilma (Mather)
