    My heart goes out to all of you. Your Mom was an amazing lady who always put a smile on my face. I was sorry to hear that Jennifer had also lost her battle with that horrible disease. Take care of all of you and know that all of you will always have a special place in my heart. Love and hugs Gwen

    Dear Ron and Family,
    We are all so very sorry to learn of Barbara and also Jennifer’s passing. We remain thankful for the many wonderful visits we enjoyed with her spanning multiple decades and will remember her kind spirit and generosity especially during our visits to Whistler, Baldi and Silver Star. Sadly we lost touch over the last couple of years despite several attempts to locate her. The cherished memories we have of our visits will keep her alive in our hearts.
    With our sincerest sympathy,
    The Schaeffer and Piggin Families (Calgary)

    Ron, Shirley, Jeff and Alex, I am sorry to hear about the passing of Barbara. I remember her fondly from days on Rena Crescent when I would come over to the house to hang out with Jen. Your mom had a mustang, which I thought was the coolest. I’m thinking of you all. Karen
