Hello Edward, Richard and family’s,

So sorry to hear about Aunt Jean’s passing. I have been trying to keep updated on her progress. Lots of fond memories of the home by the golf course, the cottage, helping at the golf course, the dogs and the home in Liverpool from when we were younger and use to visit Jean and Jim. Would love to hear from all of you.

Condolence from Joanne Phinney Roberge, Fall River NS on October 11th, 2012 7:41 am

Richard and Eddy,

So sorry to hear of Aunt Jean’s passing. I like to recall the last time I was able to visit with Aunt Jean and Uncle Jim when I returned to NS from Ontario before Uncle Jim’s passing. Aunt Jean was busy making sure all of our children had cookies and went through all of the family pictures she had in a shoebox and Uncle Jim was busy showing my husband Larry a few golf techniques out on his golf green on the lawn. As well as all of the memories I have of our family visits during the summer to White Point. It has been a hard few years since she became ill and my sympathy goes out to all of you at this time. Please stay in touch with the family.
Joanne & family
