A Genuinely Good Hearted Human Being

As a child, I remember how kind and thoughtful this generous lady was to many a family. She seemed to be one of the first to bring baking or cooking gifts to those in need or those suffering from a loss. I won't ever forget the tasty lunches she made for me and her own children when I'd be invited over during the school lunch hour. Her home-made raspberry jam was legendary! Despite being a very busy working mom, her warm witty humour always shone through. Sorry for your loss Colleen and family.
