    Mr. and Mrs. A. Van De Wetering
    We are so sorry for the loss of your mother. Meeting Kay well into her confinement at Hillsdale,  her disease couldn’t diminish the obvious gentleness of her nature.

    Joy, David and Jan and families,
    Mom and I were saddened to read of the passing of your dear mom.
    As a child,  I was always welcomed into your kitchen before Joy and I would start our trek down to St. Gregory's.   This photo of her brings back very special memories of that time in our lives.
    Ironically as former neighbours , our mothers have been in neighbouring buildings at Hillsdale dealing with similar issues.
    May your mom rest in peace.   Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
