Condolences for the family of “Mary Kemp”

Condolence from Nicola Scheu on October 30th, 2015 10:29 pm

My dearest Mum I will miss you so very much. You touched so many people’s lives with your kind, caring and considerate ways. The loving relationship you had with Dad was an amazing thing to witness. The two of you demonstrated what it really means to be a united team.

You may be gone from us physically but your memory will always live on within each of us. Thank you so much for all the love, faith and support you bestowed upon me over the years, and the care you provided my boys.

I will try not to be so sad and will live up to the pledge I made to you… ‘to look after Dad’ (as I know Lynn and Fran and others will do too).

Love always,


Condolence from May and Emery Blanchette on October 31st, 2015 10:55 am

Mary will be forever in my Heart, as my wife, best friend, counsellor & Mother to our Children through our lives together. She was my childhood Sweetheart. Married in 1950, she stood by me & our Family over the last 60 years through the good times & the bad with optimism. a sense of humor & Family virtues
She fought courageously against her Cancer, but is now at rest after a peaceful passing with Family members at her side.
Nothing will ever replace the ache in my Heart, but I take comfort from remembering the good times, also the love & support from my Daughters, Lyn, Nicola & Francesca

Love you Big

Condolence from Alan on November 3rd, 2015 7:39 pm

To Frank and girls.
I have had the privilege of knowing Mary ( your wife and mum) and having being blessed with her love and zest for life. I know that Mary would want all of us to look after each other and love each other and to enjoy our lives. I would think she would ask from all of us is that we don’t cry because she is gone but to smile that she was here and to celebrate what a special wife, mother and person she was.

Condolence from ROBERT on November 3rd, 2015 11:07 pm

You welcome me in your home as your son from the very beginning, and to you and your love for frank (DAD), i learn what is a married and how beautiful is to always walk holding hands. Mom i Thank you for my wife (Lynn) and for always and i say always been there for Crystal and Melissa….. LOVE YOU MOM. UNTIL IN HEAVEN WE SEE YOU AGAIN.

Condolence from Lynne and family on November 4th, 2015 7:44 am

I want to send condolence to Frank,Lynn,Nick and Fran and the family. I was not family but Mary always had a way of making me and the kids feel like family. I loved Marys sense of humor and kind words. She loved her family and being around the children. You could always count on her at every party helping out and having fun. There are so many wonderful memories of Mary you can’t help but smile when thinking about her. At the heart of every great family is a mother who loved and was loved. That person was Mary. She will be missed but never forgotten.
Hugs to all the family, Love Lynne ,Craig, Dustin and Chantelle
