Melody Ann, Julie, Shawn & Families, We were saddened and sorry to hear of the passing of your dear Mother. We have many fond memories of Aunt "E" at Blue Heron Ridge and later in Stratford. We enjoyed lively family reunions and pool parties in Cambridge. As our neighbor on Norman St our children were always pleased to get a special treat from Aunt "E". We are thinking of you all at this most difficult time. Keep the wonderful memories close to your heart. Randy & Linda xo
