Debbie I was so sorry hear about your Mother's passing this week. Janice called me from BC to let me know. I'm so glad she did. I can still see and hear your Mom & Dad behind the counter at the Doon General Store years ago and what I remember most is your Mother's laughter and how much your Mom loved and cared about you. Whenever she mentioned your name I could always hear it in her voice. I wish I could be at the funeral today to support you but Sam and I have a wedding to attend today. I want you to know I will be thinking about you today and will keep you and Bob and your family in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult and sad time. I will give you a call in the next couple of weeks and see if we can find a time that would work for both of us to have me come to Mount Forest for a visit. Take good care of yourself Debbie - I will look forward to seeing you soon. Love & Prayers from a long time friend who cares. Susan (Wright-Yearwood)
