So sorry to hear about Verna’s passing. She was a sweet lady. I had the privilege of meeting her when she was 97 ! She had a room at Stonehaven right beside my mother’s room (Shirley Kean). Verna was like a babysitter for my mother. She was always kind and helped my mother in so many ways. I loved doing puzzles with her and always complimented her on her dresses and jewellery. She always smiled and said “thank you”. God love her as she sews in heaven.
Please accept my condolences of the passing of your Mom. It is hard losing your Mom no matter how old we are. You were lucky to have her for so long. Remember the memories of all the years. I remember going to your house from school a lot when we were kids and she also did my sewing repairs when I cam home to retire. She was a beautiful seamstress. If there is anything I can do for you, please just give me a call.
Love from Cookie

So very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was such a delightful lady and so active for her age. I always enjoyed visiting her when we took cookies from the church, and also just a few weeks ago when we took her a prayer shawl. She really loved it.
