Years ago Richardson’s lived on South Water St. In Mount Forest. Jimmy my brother Daniel and I used to play together. At one point they had a raccoon Charlie I believe the name was. While the family was on holiday I took care of Charlie. I still have pictures of him. One day in the winter my mom was in the hospital I was out playing with the boys with boots but no socks on. My feet got so cold . Mrs. Richardson brought me in and warmed me up. I have never forgot that act of kindness.

Hi to Helen Jane, Jim and families, Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your mom but you were oh so blessed to have her all these wonderful years. With Jim we have lots of good memories from high school and beyond but Helen Jane I met and got to know through the many visits she made to our hospital with first June and Bob and then June and Harvey.. It was always a pleasure to catch up on what your families were up to. Take good care, God bless Stephen and Maureen

My sincere condolences to Jim and Diana and family. I fondly remember Mrs. Richardson making those special butter tarts for us to take up to the cottage. As June knew of my aversion to raisins she would lovingly make them without raisins for our enjoyment.
