Ruth, Peter, Leslie and Lorie. So sorry for the loss of your Mom and my favourite aunt. Dad had told me many stories of the two of them. She was certainly a character and dads hero and looked up to her in everything she did . Dad was so proud to have her as a sister.I believe it broke his heart when he was unable to travel to get to see her before he passed but now they are together. Love and condolences to all of you and your families.
