Condolence from Bruce Ward on September 27th, 2012 6:29 am

Dear Lawrence and Family,
I note the passing of your dear Kathleen at home in Liverpool.
Our visits back to Liverpool have been infrequent in recent years but we were aware that you had made your home in town up behind the old rectory. You will miss your evening walks in the community.
I recall the great congregation at St.James and a visit to your home in White Point, now so many years ago.
We are now almost ten years living in Eastern Passage outside Dartmouth and blessed with a granddaughter and, soon, a grandson.
God bless all your wonderful memories with Kathleen.
(Rev) Bruce Ward

Lawrence; Larry, Kathy, Ginny and family,

My condolences with the passing of Kay. A lovely lady and we always exchanged greetings and family updates on the course when I was home. I could always rely on her for a course ruling when I was in doubt. She was an avid golfer and enjoyed life. I thought the video memorial captured Kay ‘s attitude in life in a meaningful way. She will be missed. My best to you all.

But most of all you were a great friend: Thank you for those memories.

My fondest memories of Kay were at the card table over a rousing game of Knock or 45’s with Lawrence and my mum and dad during summer visits many years ago. Spirited, lively and always up for some fun, Kay was fun to be with. She will be missed. Very sorry to hear of her passing, and my deepest sympathies to the Verge family
