Not sure what to say?

So sad to hear of Diane &David's passing. I knew your mom many many years ago through TOPS. We spent many hours together, when your mom was expecting you and she was decorating and turning the dining room into a nursery, I believe it was on Gibbons st. In Oshawa ,many memories...Rembering all the good times. Cherie's their memories with love and smiles.

So sorry to hear of the loss of your parents in such a short time. Both your mom and dad were amazing people. I was shocked to read about your dad, then now your mom. My heart goes out to both Paula and Johnathon and your families. I knew them and you both for 24 years. They will be surely missed. I will cherish the items from your store from back when. My kids Sarah and Emily both say sorry for your losses too.

Thinking of you, Carolyn, Paul, Emily and Sarah Coolidge

Dear Beautiful Family of Dave & Diane,

My sister and I are so very sorry for this horrible loss of both parents.

Know that they were very special and truly loved. My sister and I visited Jonathan's Country Cupboard not only to purchase her very primtive items but to social with both parents. We came to call your Mom our primitive sister. There will never be another business like your Mother's. She was truly a precious gem and your Father was very honourable.

So sorry for the sad loss of both parents in such a short time. Although I didn't know Diane and David, working with Johnathan, all of your colleagues at Nomis have gained an appreciation for the values that they instilled in you - honesty, integrity, hard working ethos & kindness. May their memories provide comfort and your family & friends provide solace and support at this difficult time. Thinking of you

Paula and Jonathon - Angela and I are so saddened to hear of the loss of your parents in such a short time. You could never visit the store without planning on spending time in deep conversation with both of them. We loved our visits with them. Your Mom had the unique gift of making all feel so welcome. It was never Christmas without a visit to Jonathan's Country Patch. It was actually never a visit to Bowmanville without stopping in to chat to them. Hold their memories close. Their...

With deepest sympathy to all your family.My thoughts and prayers are with you all. They truely will be missed by all!

We were blessed to know your Mom and Dad for so many years through their store in Bowmanville. Your Mom had such a talent finding the perfect gift to fit any occasion. We appreciated her help while Marlene was in the hospital. Hold onto all the wonderful memories of your Mom and Dad and know that we will continue to carry them in our hearts. Hope you can somehow feel the many warm thoughts that are with you all now. Hugs, Marlene and Dave Buttery

Words, however kind, can't mend your heartache, but those who care and share your loss wish you comfort and peace of mind. Your Mom and Dad are in our thoughts.

Our deepest sympathy in the loss of both of your parents...I had many special memories with your Mom growing up...May you find comfort in knowing that they are at peace and with one another...Sending love and blessings... Eileen & Tim Jacobs
