To Monica, Gerard, Geralyn, Larry, Kevin (and all the extended family) so

It makes me think of all the fun we had on the farm when we were kids. Those memories we will never forget. For everything your mom, dad and Aunt Mary put up with, they were truly patient people because we certainly put them through the test.

So sorry for your loss, she will truly be missed by many.

Love always Donna and Gisele
Your cousins from Burlington Ontario Canada
