Sincere condolences Barb and family members. I will always remember your Mom/Grandmother as a darling, classy lady. Wally and I had the privilege of renting Betty and Rod's cottage for 2 or 3 summers, for a week. They were some of the best holidays we ever enjoyed. Good memories are so important. Hope you will always have them to remember. Miriam Long
