Margaret, Brian, David and Terri
I am so sorry to hear of "Auntie Joan's" passing. It has been years since Barbie and I last visited her on Mitchner and she was so shocked and pleased to see us at the time, but there has never been a trip down Collishaw that I didn't look fondly in the direction of that house and have very dear memories of her, Uncle Arsene and you four kids and all of our family having such good times together. I feel your pain and sadness at this time and please know that all of you are in my thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time. Hugs to all of you from an old friend..........Brenda (Willett) Butland
