Michelle, Nick and Greg .... I have been trying to find some pictures of your Mom from when her and I spent time together those many years ago in Summerville,SC I remember on my birthday one year she decided to surprise me with a birthday lunch. I came to your home and she had made some sort of soup... When I asked what it was she said "Sal....mend Stew" in her southern accent. I said "what kind of stew" she said "sal...mend" "your Canadian you should know what that is". I said "oh do you mean Salmon Stew" She said "yes sal...mend" I laughed so hard...:heart::heart::heart: I am already missing our Facebook chats... We had not talked on the phone recently but I can still hear her southern accent and infectious laugh:heart::heart::heart:You are all in my prayers :pray::pray::pray:

Greg I have tried to write something four times and nothing seems adequate for me to say. I have read on your Facebook page and there are so many tributes to her and you. She left too soon and the shock of this has not sunk in yet and I have thought about you all every minute.I know that she loved me, she called or was there when we needed her.I hope she knew I loved her, she was special evem though I did not communicate as often as I should have.I pray that God gives you the strength to get through the next few days and the months to come.
