Dear Bob and Louise,
Today I have looked at the Vancouver Sun/Province Guest Book. Just remembering mom as I do periodically and to view some of the posts. I randomly typed in some names and came across the Memorial site for your daughter, Michelle.
I am so very sorry to learn of your loss. My sincere condolences.

Dear Louise & Bob, I just learned today of your sad loss. I don't think there are words that can help when a parent loses a child - my heart goes out to you.
With sincere condolences,

Dear Bob and Louise,
Words do not express the sadness of Michele's passing. I knew her as a child growing up in our close knit neighbourhood, slightly older than my own children. Our families spent a lot of time together, and I can still see her pretty face always smiling and being most respectful to everybody. You were wonderful parents and there was a real sense of family when being in your house, often with your extended family. Eventually we all moved away, but those early memories are most precious and never forgotten.
Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to you both, Mikka and your family.
Dear Mikka,
When your mother was a young girl she and her little sister Nicki lived right behind us at Chelmsford. We had a gate between our yards, so that we could visit each other often. When your mother and friends played in the backyard, I could hear her cute giggle.
I remember your mother as a very sweet and lovely girl. When I saw you at the service, it so reminded me of her, as you look a lot alike, and have the same beautiful smile. Your mother used to come over to our house and play with my little baby boy, Thomas. On Sundays, she and her sister attended Ukrainian Sunday school. Your grandma Louise dressed the girls in beautiful little dresses for the occasion. Your mother was always kind and polite, and I miss her a lot.
Mikka, be brave, remember all your mother taught you and the beautiful times you spent together.

Ps. I love your artwork – the pigs. Never stop painting!
Bob & Louise,
There are no words... I'm so sorry for your loss.
Dear Louise, Robert and Mikka,

I just learned the sad news of Michele's passing. My heart goes out to each of you and your family. I am deeply saddened myself.

I had not seen Michele for a few years but I thought of her so many, many times during these years. Michele left me with such a memorable impression. She was such a lovely, kind and deeply appreciative person with a truly great spirit. I admired her so much for her inner strength during very difficult times. Her focus was always her family. She expressed many times how lucky she was to have the unconditional support of her parents, Louise and Robert, other family and close friends. The biggest love of her life was clearly her daughter. Mikka, your Mom loved you more than words can even describe. You were the absolute joy of her life. She was so proud of you and always wanted you to have the very best in life. Her eyes sparkled and lit up whenever she talked about you and I know she will continue to watch over you, an angel, because you were her angel.

With heartfelt sympathy,

Lisa Hamilton
Dear Bob and Louise,

Dear Louise and Bob,
You and your little granddaughter have not been from our minds since we first heard of the shocking loss of your lovely daughter Michele. Your were in our thoughts also before Christmas because of the loss of the children in Newtown, USA and we remembered the Christmas we spent with you all at Lynnie and Al's after you had just lost Nicole. To go through this a second time must be almost unbearable. Lynne has told us of your plans of moving. Your granddaughter is sure to be a blessing and comfort to you both going forward. Mikki's loving tribute to her mother is evidence of a special relationship that will always be her's.
