    Although we lost touch a long time ago, “Mrs. Guthrie” has been remembered in many of our conversations over the years. Her friendliness and kindness remembered very well by her young neighbours Tanya and Candace for her invitations for play-times and the treks to Strathcona beach with Kimberley and Robin.
    Our sincere sympathy to the Guthrie family.
