We remember Mary and Jimmy as good friends of my parents, Betty and Frank Wenn, neighbours who lived in the Six Points area of Toronto......I'm a daughter. It was Jimmy who sold us our engagement ring 60 years ago. We are still together. I remember Mary and Jimmy's pride in 'Marilyn' who was their joy. Mary always had wonderful stories to share about 'Marilyn'. I hope you know Marilyn how you were loved from the very beginning by your parents. I was always very impressed how special you were to them both. Our condolences.

My sister Susan Croft’s told us your Mother has just passed away, my Mother and father Frank and Betty Wenn were great friends, I remember lots of fun parties with my Aunt and Uncle Merv and Helen Davis with your parents. We have lost all of them too, maybe they have all met up again!
It’s very hard to lose a parent, just keep remembering all the fun times you all had together
