    So sad the hear that my dear friend Lydia has passed away. We met when we both worked in the offices of Coast Hotels, in the 1980s and became firm friends and confidants. Although I had not seen Lydia for more than 18 years since we moved away from the lower mainland we always kept in touch at Christmas time. She was a lovely gentle soul and she will be sorely missed by her friends and family.

    We are so sorry that we are unable to attend the memorial. We all loved Lydia. I can still hear her wonderful accent that made Ron giggle on a regular basis! She will be missed by all who knew her (and her amazing cooking). Xox

    Dear Lydia, you will be so missed by everyone. I remember you ever cheerful and happy to see me. You always asked me how my Mom was doing. I recall your excitement and your warm hug. I am sorry that your family will not have you around, for now. But God knew the exact minute He would open the curtain of Heaven for your arrival. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints”. Psalm 116 vs 15. Thank you for being the very special lady that you were.

    Irene, Ron and family, my Mom and I send our heart felt wishes for your comfort. May you be comforted by the God of all comfort. 2 Corinthians 1 vs 3
