Nancy (Annie Evelyn) Reid Hartwick January 26, 1922 - July 26, 2013 Dear Mom: You journeyed on last July, gratefully with no pain, leaving us deeply grieving as we held your hands comforted with your eyes and serenity. As the year closes we wish to tell you of our abiding love; how much we miss you. Your words are held in our hearts: " we will all be together again - I am watching over you all - I know this! " Mom, you are the center of our family teaching us to be honorable and enjoy life through your loving spirit of passionate courage, generosity and integrity. We were your priority; never giving up on things you believed in with " family is the most important of all ". You 'gifted' us a wonderful childhood and a long, loving life together, filling our home with warmth, fun, heavenly desserts and an 'open house' for our friends; leaving us a 'treasure trove' of memories. Our love, pride and gratitude are forever. Reid's Corners, Rutland BC was your pioneering family's home. You were joyously greeted on the 'other side' by your parents: John and Annie Reid; siblings Jackie, Dennis, Jennie with your beloved dog, Chummy! After graduation, you worked in the Bank of Montreal in Kelowna, Vancouver and Toronto; returning married raising us in West Vancouver. You were instrumental in establishing North Shore 'special needs' classes for the love of your younger son. Your West Van Real Estate career was stellar; your clients never forgetting you! In 1982, entrepreneurial spirit launched your company with your daughter: Powder Mountain Resorts Ltd. You remained an active President greatly admired by friends/associates sharing your vision/integrity. We honored your wishes privately celebrating your wonderful, long life with a Champagne toast playing " Up Where We Belong ". Special thanks to Dr. Bryan Norton and his 'right arm' Linda Giraud for always 'being there'. We hear you Mom: " See you later kids; no more tears; on with the coffee! " Love always, Mike, Dianne & Warren
