I do not know if you remember me but I worked at S&D Coffee for 21 years until 2005. I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. I just recently lost my husband and I know this is a difficult time for you and your family. Please accept my sincerest condolences.

Joanna was a dear friend for a long time. We used to room together when we went on trips with the Senior's group from Parkwood. After she became disabled it was a joy to visit her in her home on Camerose then at St. Andrews. I will surely miss her
