To All of Carolyn's Family, My visits as Caregiver with your Mom and Nana were a delight, as we would laugh at the experiences of life that only could be laughed at but also enjoyed philosophical discussions which Carolyn shared her profound beliefs. She would speak of her cherished family and all who truly knew and loved Carolyn will miss her spirit. I will miss my Friend.

David, Susan and Meredith - please accept my most sincere condolences. Though decades have passed since we were in one another's company, I have never forgotten the three of you or your parents. Both of them were very good to me and I was sorry to lose touch with all of you when I left London. Whenever I drive by your former home on the 7th Concession, my mind drifts back to those wonderful days. In the immortal words of Bob Hope " Thanks for the memories." - Paul Ross

Meredith and family: I am saddened to read of the passing of your mom. I have such fond memories of her as being a kind, happy and fun loving woman. I remember the days when we were in UH together and she would bring us up the good stuff from the kitchen that was not on the regular patient menu. She even continued to check in on me from time to time after you were released. It was those little gestures of kindness that made the days pass by more easily. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time. Dawne Hindley

Meredith, Jeff & Family, So sorry for your loss! Praying for peace and comfort for you all during this difficult time. Love your friends, Martha & Bert Reis
