Dear Ruth (Skip),

Many, many years ago, we worked together at Algonquin Comp. School, actually, you trained had a lot of patience. Those were the good old days.

At that time, you didn't have any children. I'm so glad that you are a mom and grandmother,

they will comfort you in your time of loss.

I was sad to read of Bill's passing, I'm sure you have many good memories of your 69 years together.

I'm thinking of you, take care of yourself.

Sorry to hear of the loss of my God Father

Dear Skip, Sylvie and Gilles

My thoughts are with you at this sad time. I have many fond memories of our fun times with the Taylors.

Bill and Skip introduced us to the South Shore and our family is still there forty years later creating memories. My condolences to you all.
