Dear Connie and family,
To Annie’s family, please accept our sincere sympathy in the passing of your mom. She was a sweet lady. We always enjoyed seeing both your mom and dad spending time together at Nithview. It was obvious they took comfort in having each other near. Connie, you have been a faithful daughter visiting so often. The other residents and staff will miss seeing you waltz through the halls with lovely summer bouquets for your mom’s pleasure. May the many ways in which you honoured your mother (and your father) bring you great peace. Sincerely, Linda Kress & Jim Paul
