Dear Mother: Sunday, May 17th, 8:15pm.

Hope you’re settling in to your new place. We trust that Dad and our little baby sister Margaret were

there waiting for you at the front Door along with Grandma Ella, Grandpa Leon and Uncle Charlie. Did

Charlie pick you up in his fancy new sports car? What was it again? Oh Yes; a brand spanking new MG,

racing green in colour wasn’t it? The pictures looked nice. We bet it goes pretty fast!! We bet you

didn’t even give Uncle Charlie a chance to drive it! hahaha…It must feel nice to have the wind in your

face once again?!

We’re sure after your long travels you must have been starving! We can smell the fresh baked pies and

Grandma Ella’s tea biscuits in the oven. Did Dad make you some cabbage rolls and We bet his fish

chowder will go nice with those warm tea biscuits. How’s Grandpa Leon? We know it’s been some time

for you since you last laid eyes on him. We know you missed him terribly, so It must be nice to see him

again? We’re so happy for you.

How’s Grandma Ella? We love her new hat and coat! Tell her she looks gorgeous! Was she playing the

piano with Grandpa Leon on the viola when you came home? Nearer my god to thee? Wasn’t that their

favorite? It always amazed us how Grandpa Leon played that viola with one arm! How does he do it?

The way he tucks it under his chin like that is a riot and super B duper cool! He’s a genius we tell ya! We

hope they entertain Dad with the odd polka! You know how Dad loves his Polka music!! Hahahaha…

Please send them all our love.

We hope you never miss another show whether it be The Rise and Follies or the Summertime Revue or

the folks singing out on the Mira. How about all those wonderful Shows we enjoyed at the HAT and over

at Festival on The Bay, All the plays at over at the Playhouse. The Burkes and The Accents and The

Barra’s John Allen and Buddy MacMaster and of course The Rankins. You enjoyed them all and more!

We love what you’ve done with the place. Beautiful colours. We love all your pretty china pieces and

figurines! We love how you placed them along the shelves up above the window frames and along the

living room wall. That was a good idea. Oh and Thank you for all your paintings and all the knitted

sweaters and hats over the years. We loved them all. We found your bowl! The one you made at

pottery class. You were always so crafty Mom.

It’s getting late here so we should be heading to bed soon. We just wanted to tell you How much we all

love you and miss you. You’re the talk of the town! Everyone is pouring out their sentiments and telling

wonderfully funny and loving stories. How you always made people smile with your infectious laughter

and caring heart. There’s a community of people here that just adore you mom!

Wayne, Ian, Brad and myself want to wish you a bon voyage. Kathy and the girls Tiffany, Melissa and

Laura are crafting up some wonderful memories. Megan and Thomas are so busy these days. Megan

with helping and caring for those sick at the hospital and Thomas with all the wonderful animals that

need help. William and Patrick in Toronto send their love and all the gang in Rhode Island; Breton, Ianna,

Topaz, and Raven are well and wishing you a lovely and peaceful journey.

We’ll sign off by saying; the warmth from the tears we feel as they run down the side of our cheeks are

as full of the love and the joy that you have brought to all who have ever known you. We celebrate you!

We Miss you and We shall forever hold you lovingly in our hearts!

Sincerely your loving Family and Dear friends!

P.S.

Don’t forget to feed the dog Pudgey!!
