Dear AL and family,
My deep condolences to all of you. Your Mom had a rich life as she knew well.
I will miss our lifelong friendship of 80 years, our annual trips out to the West end to visit our childhood favourite places. Most of all I will miss being with her, her intelligence, broad knowledge, our shared interests including travel, love of learning and our always interesting
conversations and deep friendship. I will also miss you, her family, who I got to know through many delightful weekends over the years at the Morson cottage on Muskoka Lake.
I hope that the love and support of friends and family will ease the pain of your great loss.
With love, Elaine Solway
