Condolence: Dear Ken,
Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your dear mother.
I think of growing up in Westfort and the wonderful childhood we had. In large part due to our wonderful mothers.
I still ride my bike down Mountdale Ave and think about how lucky we were to have been raised in such a great neighbourhood.
I know your mom's memory will always be held deep in your heart.
Thinking of you and your family,
Donna Gilhooly

Condolence: To Kenny, Don, Barry, Rendell, Cindy
My brother, Norman, sisters, Joanne and Judy and my family, John, Katrina and Ian were saddened by the news of the passing of our Auntie Maxine. Judy was just speaking with Pat Vezina who called to tell her that her husband was flown here for heart surgery and she asked about Auntie Maxine. Pat just called to tell us of her passing. We have such fond memories of our childhood in Thunder Bay and we were recounting stories of the "early" days when we were all living together in the house on Crawford Street while your house was being built on Mountain Ave. Every time I came back to Thunder Bay I would go with my mother to visit Auntie Maxine. We have not had many opportunities to see auntie Maxine since my mother and father moved to Newmarket to live with my sisters. All of us remember how friendly and caring she was, and the great sense of humour she had. It was so nice that she was able to live with Kenny and family as long as she did. On behalf of the Brown and Kalyniuk family, we would like to send our condolences to all of you, and that Auntie Maxine will be in our thoughts and prayers at this time.
