Doug: So sorry to hear of Agnes' passing. I remember working with her and Lucy Grant. They were so funny to be with and they helped me out a lot. I have thought about her from time to time over the years and remembered her with great fondness. I was sorry to read about Pat and your wife, also. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Hang in there.

Our sincere sympathy to your family. We had such a great visit your sweet mom(our aunt) 3 years ago at Caressant Care. We reminisced our earlier years ie: visits to Grandma & Grandpa Cooper & many stops into Stan's Confectionary where she spoiled us with large scoops of ice cream. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Diane Pelich(nee McKinnon)
