Lloyd, Judy and Family,
Having just returned from mom’s (Wilda) funeral in Brooklyn, we are very sad to hear of the passing of your mom. Rosalie and my condolences go out to the Dexter family.
I always remember the great times I had at the Dexter house, especially the surprise going away (to Edmonton) party your mom hosted for me back in 1961.

Pamela Ditchoff and Willy
My sympathy on the loss of your mother, grand mother, great grand mother. Willy and I are the Saint Johns’s Ambulance therapy dog team that visit the Manor every Saturday morning. Marjorie always greeted us with a smile and pats for Willy. If she was still eating breakfast, she would share a piece of toast with Willy. She would sometimes touch my cheek or take my hand. The goodness in her shined bright in her lovely eyes.
Sincerely, Pamela Ditchoff and Willy
Linda & Robert Trainor
Lloyd & Judy, so sorry to see that your MOM pass away. I remember them when I lived in Brooklyn & they lived just up the road. I was away when she passed & was buried. My prayers are with you & all the family. Hang on to the memories of both your MOM & DAD. May GOD bless you all. Linda

I was sad to hear of Marjorie’s passing. It brings back so many memories. Lovely to see the pictures of the whole family. Sometimes, after doing June’s paper route with her, I remember ending up in the kitchen with little Philip toddling around. Marjorie always seemed calm and steady, a cheerful presence in the neighbourhood, and in my childhood. (Having some of your animals in our field also made life more interesting for us.)
My condolence to Marjorie’s children, grand children, & great grand children that meant so much to her. I got great memories watching the video, seeing your family from times gone by. Especially Greta, she’s always in my thoughts. Your mother was the heart of your family. Made everyone welcome in your home. Deepest sympathy.
