To the Ledger Family,

I was saddened to read of your mother's passing. It brought back so many memories of us as neighbours and the many times your parents, Ron and I had visited back & forth.
Your parents and I were all born in 1925. Your dad used to say... it was a good year. 1925 was a good year.
My deepest sympathy.

My father who is 98 years old is now living with me after leaving his retirement residence and talks about your mother and father and what good neighbours they were.

I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Marianne's passing. I remember her as a beautiful, energetic woman who was devoted to her family. She was warm and welcoming to me and my family whenever we would visit, and she could whip up a dinner for 9 on short notice with seemingly no effort. And yes, I remember her apple pies! My heart goes out to all my cousins and their families at this sad time.
