    Dear Cindy and Family: Our deepest sympathy and Gods blessings on the passing of Vangie. She will be remembered for her warm and welcoming nature and especially when we would drop in on our way home from Osoyoos for some laughs, share news and of coarse share a wonderful lunch. She was always ready to help family and friends however she could. She will be missed. Gods blessings on you Cindy and family during this difficult time.

  • Andre Prefontaine says:

    My deepest condolences Cindy. Your mom was a special lady who would always light up what ever room she was in. As youngsters, I really never appreciated everything that her and your dad did for my brother Phil and myself but after growing up I really appreciated all the sacrifices they made to help us out. It definitely had a big impact on our lives.

  • Tora says:

    I am thinking of you Cindy, Laura and Marc. Your Mom (Grandma) was so lovely and always made me laugh. I am glad that I was able to enjoy an awesome vacation with her and learn the secret to some amazing pickles. I smile when I think of her.
