Her paintings grace the walls of our homes and those of many other family members and friends. Mom, we will miss your gracious presence, the twinkle in your eye, and your quiet but keen sense of humour that you shared with those closest to you. You are truly loved by all! The family would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the staff and doctors at Riverdale Personal Care Home, the Palliative Care volunteers, and especially Eleanor Madden for her support to Mom and our family over the past few years.
