Dear Judi and Peter,

Madelon just called me from New York to tell me of Lenore's passing. I would like to offer you my heartfelt condolences. I had sent off a postcard to her last week to wish her well. What more can I say than to tell you once again how special she was, how I still have the fondest memories of her of my time in Barbados and how I will never forget her. I would like to wish you strength and wisdom to come to terms with her passing away.

My warmest regards to you,

Monique

Dearest Judy and Peter,

My sincere condolences for losing your mum, best friend and one of the most special people I have the pleasure to know. Can not even begin to tell you how sad I am. I am very sad that I will not be able to pay my personal respects on Tuesday or Wednesday, but please know that I will be there in spirit. I am already burning candles for the memory of Lenore, one of the nicest, sincere, sweet, caring people I have ever met. I love her very much and will miss her terribly. I think it is very brave of Judy to immediately turn the focus on celebrating Lenore's life, but I think that is exactly what she would want us to do..... I know that you are all a very close loving family, and that you will find comfort from each other.

I will never forget my dear dear friend Lenore and hope that she is at peace with your dad now.

Big hug Madelon

Judi,

I was so sorry to hear about your mom. Madelon let me know and sent me a lovely picture of your mom. I will always remember her dazzling blue eyes, lovely smile and kind heart. How wonderful that you were able to bring her to Barbados last year. Much love to both you and Peter.

Ben and I keep a very cute picture of Aunt Lenore and Dad right by the phone and as I glance at it right now I truly hope their spirits have found one another and that they are both in peace. I have kept the last message that she left for us a short time ago and smile when I hear her voice. Just so very much wish I'd see her as usual in the springtime when I would bring her a geranium and she'd chuckle because by then she already had 7 or 8 but welcomed the new addition just the same. Please let me know if there is anything Ben and I can do. Will always treasure memories of moments with Aunt Lenore.

Mom & Dad

It was so good to spend the extra time with you, It was good for me to be in the house one last time for an extended visit, it is allowing me to put Her passing in a good place in my heart, as being so far away I sometimes feel my family ties are a bit looser then my siblings

Please take care of each other and try your best to make the most of your trip despite the loss, Gramma would want all of us to go forward with her on our hearts and memories not as a weight, but carry her spirit to get the most out of life as she and Grampa always did.

Work hard, contribute to the community, be charitable, love your family, and enjoy life, these are the gifts that they both have left with me.
Love always

Hello Cam,

Thank you so much for forwarding the lovely picture of your Mom. She was such a kind, positive and genuine person who brought joy to those around her. I will miss visiting her in Galt this spring and our chats on the phone but will always remember how special she made Ben and I feel.

Take care Cam. Please pass along our condolences to Doug, Geri, Dave, Judi, Peter, Sharon,
Cheryl and families.

Love Patt and Ben Nearingburg

Hi Peter and Judi
First let me offer my condolences to you and your family.
She was truly a beautiful person. I am now recalling the conversation we had together while she was here and how ALL the staff loved to be her nurse.
Prayers for you and yours

Lenore was a lovely lady. She enjoyed life and loved her family. I will truly miss our visits together when I visited Cheryl. Our deepest sympathy to her family who will miss her but are left with so many great memories .

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. My Mother Audrey Hamer was very sad to hear the news . She has been a friend to Lenore since she was married and came to St. Andrew's church . My Mother played the piano often when Lenore sang . For many years they walked home together after Choir practice. Your Mother even sang at my Wedding over 38 years ago. Lenore was a beautiful person inside and out . No one will ever forget her smile.
My Mother living in a Nursing Home will truly miss the thoughtful notes and cards sent often . " She was the best of friends "
With Sympathy

Our sympathy and thoughts are with your family. We will miss Lenore - her waves from the porch in the summer and her big smile at the neighbourhood Christmas parties. In sympathy - Karen Suk-Patrick & Duncan Patrick & family

A beautiful person with a beautiful spirit who lived her life to the fullest. My most heartfelt sympathies go out to the whole family as we watch another bright shining star light the evening sky. Sincerely with love.

The sad news of Mrs. Ridsdale's passing arrived this morning and I just wanted to let the family know how sorry I am to hear it.
No expression of sympathy - no matter how deeply felt - can help much righ now, but I had to let you know that my thoughts are with you.
I have so many great memories of life on Brant Road - Mrs "R" was so much more than a neighbour - she is gone but not forgotten
Sincerely,
Dave Van Wagoner

The picture says it all. A woman with a quick smile who had a lot of joy in her life. She was so proud of her ever growing family. I will miss visiting her at 44 Brant Road South.
