Condolences for the family of “Mary Ella Neil”

Condolence from Leslie & Marty Lowe on July 31st, 2015 1:14 pm

Very sorry to hear of Stuarts Mom passing. Sending good thoughts and prayers during this trying time to all the family.

Condolence from Gary and Maureen Patterson on July 31st, 2015 2:00 pm

Gary says he has known Mary since she arrived at the Pt. Holmes house, a house full of strangers, with a
fridge full of beer! I met Mary at Robb Street. Stewart was a shy little boy Ian a baby who sat on my lap
and played with my copper filing necklace. Mary had baked bread, the house smelled wonderful, and
it was delicious. Over the years we lived close together and also miles apart but our friendship
continued – distance didn’t matter. We took up where we had left off no problem.
To us Mary was sweet, patient and kind. Mary holds a dear place in our hearts and memories – always
will.
Our love and thoughts go out to you Tom and to Stewart, Ian, Shelly, Maira and the families in
Scotland. Love, Gary and Maureen

Condolence from Colleen (Patterson) Purcell on July 31st, 2015 2:06 pm

Dear Tom, Ian, Stewart, Shelley and Maira,
Jamie is away, but on behalf of both of us, I am so sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. It somehow doesn’t seem that long ago that I remember sitting in the living room on 260th while Mary helped me solve codes in a puzzle book I got for Christmas. Your family was such a big part of our lives growing up and I remember Mary as quiet and kind. Please get in touch if there’s anything at all we can do for you. Love and hugs to you all, Colleen

Condolence from Lorraine (Patterson) Lanthier on August 3rd, 2015 5:54 pm

Dear Tom, Stewart, Ian, Shelley and Maira, I am so sorry to hear of Mary’s passing. I first met her when she and Tom were first married and they came to stay with us, for a weekend, at our family home in Esquimalt. Over the years we all shared many good times together. We also shared a kindred spirit as our Mom and grand-parents were from Scotland. She was a gentle lady and always had a lovely smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.
Love to all, Lorraine Lanthier

Condolence from Tom, Stewart, Ian, Shelley & Maira on August 16th, 2015 8:24 pm
