Karen and John and families My heart goes out to you for your loss. I have so many happy memories of your Mum from Redstone Lake. It takes a community to raise a child and your Mum along with Annie and Vera were my other Mom's. Olga could always be counted along to dispense wise advice along with an aero bar or two. Mum enjoyed her trip to England with Olga and the many games of scrabble at the cottage. Winter weekends on the lake with your family are also treasured memories. Take care Love Jean and Howie
