'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far and Grace will lead me home.
Aunt Priscilla was a kind and generous person. I have many wonderful memories of her. Some of my memories revolve around the visits my daughter Nicole and I made to see her and Uncle Jack at their cottage. We would go for walks or roast marshmallows together. Nicole and I would splash about in the water. However Aunt Priscilla was a huge fan of the Toronto Blue Jays. Whatever we were doing had to stop when a game was broadcast. She said Uncle Jack liked them too but it was always Aunt Priscilla who found the game - first on a radio and then later on a small portable TV. Uncle Jack would help fiddle with the antenna. Then she would be all set. The Blue Jays were simply not to be missed even when she was at the cottage.
Nicole and I were saddened to hear of her passing. She will be deeply missed.
Priscilla was a wonderful friend and neighbour to me, I could not have wished for anyone better.
We spent many happy times and shared many meals together, and I truly miss those wonderful times.
She will be sadly missed by many.
May she now rest in the arms of our Lord .
