Joan and I wish to offer our condolences for your loss of such a wonderful thoughtful and caring person. Setting such a high standard of service to all those people on her mail route, if Canada Post had such good staff from the TOP DOWN TODAY CANADA would be a better place, as children start learning from those they meet early in life.

Dobie, Shelly, Matthew and Riley,
I (carol) was so upset when Riley came to the back door of the Post Office Friday morning looking for Doreen. I knew something was desperately wrong, I’ve never seen Riley like that before. We were so sad to hear that Belva had passed away. For almost 20 years Belva was part of my day. She did always have a smile on her face. The whole family were so good to her, helping her out when she needed, everyone could see how much you all loved her. Hold on to the memories, don’t ever have regrets, just remember each day how much she loved you. Belva will be missed. My deepest sympathy to each of you.
