    We are so sorry for your loss of a very special lady. How lucky you are to have your wife, mom, grandmother and great-grandmother in your family.

    There are so many good memories over the 45 years I have known your family…..your Mom & Dad always there at Alouette Lake when our kids were growing up, great times and stories. Mom (as I have called her, especially when mine had passed) was a great listener and always had good sound advice. She always had positive things to say about everyone, and it was so easy to see the love she had for her family.

    Keep each other close, especially Dad.

    A little something for thought………

    When I leave you, be strong.
    Pass the smiles around and remember
    How my stories and laughing pleased you.
    Look at one another, hold each other,

    When I leave you, be strong.
    Pass the smiles around and remember
    How my stories and laughing pleased you.
    Look at one another, hold each other,
    And remember all the happy times we
    shared together.

    As for me, I’ll be off in a place of peace
    and everlasting tranquility.
    I’ll always remember you and
    I ask that you remember me.
    When you’re ready,
    I’ll be there – waiting for you.
    Until then, take your time.

  3. I love you GG.

    Dear Lorraine,
    and not forgetting Rod, my daughter and granddaughter of heart Tanya and Cara
    Matthew and Rachel,

    A hug to you all.

    If instead of a gem, or even a flower,
    We should cast the gift of a loving thought
    Into the heart of a friend.
    That would be giving as the angels give.
    -George MacDonald

    Thinking of you all.
    Love Marcia and Sandy

    you were truly an amazing woman. I am so proud and honoured to have had you in my life. I have some pretty great memories of you, a particular one being when you put me and grandpa to work icing 100+ sugar cookies.
    I miss you tons but I know you’re watching over us all. I love you with all my heart, rest in peace.
    Ps. I’ll try and perfect your sugar cookies one day 🙂

  7. I love you GG love Cara

  9. Miss you like crazy grandma, I have so many fond memories of you. From you trying to play duck hunt with us to putting together a collection of your old nik naks that me and Katie could go through and bring home after a sleepover as kids, which at the time was so exciting. Love you lots and always thinking of you.

  10. “What an amazing person and what a remarkable life. We feel so lucky we got to know her.”
