Anthony and Karen
Karen and I were both very saddened to hear of your Mother’s passing yesterday. Although I had known her for a long time, I’m not sure Karen ever had the honour of meeting her. She was always so polite when we did meet, and those occasions were always pleasurable. You can be assured that you Heather and all your family will be in our thoughts and prayers over the next days. She will also be sorely missed I am sure by Angela, Katie and Kevin. She was a caring and loving wife, mother and grandmother and we know she is resting in peace after a wonderful life. Take care of each other. With our love, Anthony and Karen

Rosalee and Murray Smith
Sorry for your loss – losing a loved one is not easy – memories are to be cherished.
Jean, Ronnie, and Heather,
The news of your mother’s passing has deeply affected me. I have such memories of the many visits during which I stayed at the Burns house, with Mom and Dad when I was a child, and with Brian, my hubby, once an adult and married. She was so gracious, warm, and others have mentioned, always had such a lovely smile. I remember, also, her understated sense of humour! Between her and your father, that home was always filled with laughter (and full bellies!).
She weathered great challenged, from what I observed, with a calm disposition and grace. She adored her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren (and maybe even some great-great-grandchildren)–a true matriarch, if ever there was one.
Mom was a true matriarch, too, as I’m sure you recall. The loss of my mother is one I will probably never get over, so I know this loss is profound for all of you. They are forever missed, the likes of these women, but oh, the honour of having known them so intimately.
Your mother, personally speaking, was very dear to me. I remember once thinking, when I was about 9 or
Oops–I guess I went on a bit too much, but just to conclude:
When I was about 9 or 10, I remember thinking that if anything happened to my own mother, I would adopt your mother as my new mother! It is a tribute to her, I think, that I so readily understood that she might adopt me if I asked her to.
Much love to you all, and maybe we will see some of you when we are in NS this summer.
Lynda & Richard McLeod
Sorry for your loss, fond memories of a wonderful lady.
