My condolances go out to all Tena's family. Tena was my fun loving American cousin who made many trips to Nova Scotia over the years. We spent many fun times together sharing stories about the good old days. She had such a rich,healthy laugh that was witnessed by all who crossed her path. We will miss you my friend/cousin.

Tina was a co-worker of mine at the Welfare Office. She was a stern supervisor, but was the opposite outside the office. She often spoke of her children and grandchildren. I will miss her. My condolences to her family.

Hey Big Sis ( even though you were the shortest of us), I sure am going to miss you. I'll have your Minxie to ease the pain of your loss, and I'll try to be a good Mom to him. I thought we would have one more Bonnet Creek vacation together this spring since we didn't make it in December, but you changed those plans. I hoped we would have more time, you're gone. I love you, Sis.
