Mom you are at peace after a 5.5year battle and we can all take solace in that. We are the ones who struggle now as we come to terms with having to say goodbye. You always loved, cared for and supported us. When I think of how something should be done or how I can best help my children I reflect on what you would do. Our cottage memories, Nottingham, and time spent with Wesley and Avery I cherish and hold so dear to my heart. Thanks to you I worked through a very challenging time in my life and made it through the other side just as you assured me I would. Adam is now an integral part of our lives and I couldn't be happier. You got to know him (and approved) and soon he too was a part of great times together at the cottage, in Etobicoke and in our new home.
Your relationship with Dad grew and developed (over several years of dating and 46 years of marriage) into a love that very few people ever experience. Dad always says he's the luckiest because he knew you the longest! He's right about knowing you the longest but I feel the luckiest because I was fortunate enough to call you Mom. I love you.
Chris and family, I was so sorry to hear that Joan, who fought so graciously, was taken by this heartless disease. You must know and remember that she is now at peace and free of pain. With faith you understand that she is still with you and you will meet again. Every memory is meant to acknowledge that process. My heart and prayers go out to you. Karen xo
So sorry to hear of Joan's passing. The years have really gone fast and haven't been in touch for sometime but do recall the many good times with my next door neighbours.My deepest sympathy
Just found out about Joan today and my heart sank. Although it was many years ago in Brampton I still have such warm memories of you both. Joan was beautifully, inside and out; she was kind, compassionate, and simply devoted to you and your family. What a huge loss!
Chris and Family,
Our thoughts are with you at this very sad time. We hope that your memories of Joan's love for each of you and your many good times together as a family will bring you comfort.
With deepest sympathy,
Don and Ann Huband
