Dear Janis, Barbara, David and families:

Paul and I would like to offer all of you our deepest condolences on the loss of your beloved mother and mother-in-law. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time.

Your mom was very special to us and we loved her very much. It was my honour to refer to her as "mom". RIP Vi.

Your many wonderful memories will help sustain you. Here is a favourite of mine from a few years ago when Janis and I took Vi to Niagara Falls. Stephanie joined us for dinner. What fun we had showing Vi all the sights of Niagara Falls.
