I will cherish my very fond memories of annual visits with Mamie. Grace and I had so much fun with her - day trips, great food, shopping and playing games late at night. They were made even more fun by her incredible sense of humour and great personality.

Dear Kevin & Family, I hope that your memories are of comfort to you now and in the times ahead. My prayers and sympathy. Love Evelyn

We will all miss Mamie. She was so caring and had a quick wit that we loved. She loved talking with us about family and was always tell me she had to keep Rick and Marshall in line. I will always cherish the tea cups she gifted me before my wedding. Photos I’ve included are of when Rick and Mamie talked with the children at the school career fair and a photo of them receiving the community service award from the school.

Dennis and I imported Miata cars from all over USA for a few years. We always left them at Aunt Mamie's while we waited for the car to clear customs. During that time we visited Aunt Mamie and Uncle Freddy often and grew closer. We will miss her deeply.

Dear Kevin and Connie:

I was only fortunate enough to meet your Mom once on a trip your parents made down to Hudson over 20 years ago now. I fell in love with her instantly. She was quite the character! I laughed so hard the whole time they were at the house! I remember digging up some purple spider wart flowers for her to bring home. She was fascinated with all the different flowers we had in the yard. I wish that I had gotten to know her better, as I believe we would have gotten along very well. I am glad that Walter got to take an extended vacation a few years back on his bike and visit with both you and Aunt Mamie! Our hearts are heavy with the news of her passing. Please know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Deb and Walter Farquharson
