It was a truly sad moment when I read about the passing of Mary Anne Murphy
I met her in 2002 when I needed professional assistance to lease my home in Whitby & then again my other home in Ajax

She was always a pleasure to deal with whenever I would call/email or drop by the office over the last 16.5 years

God bless her & may she rest in Peace,

Sincerely Konstantine S.
