  • Dear Bev and Family and Linda and Family:
    My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your families. My heart aches for you and your loss. From the small things I have heard, I realize you have had a sense of loss over the years that has culminated. I wish for you that when you look over your children you see the legacy left by Aunt Ila. No greater honour has been given to her that through the heritage she had left behind than through her grandchildren.
    Sincerely Bonnie
