    Tom, Murray and Family,
    I was so shocked and saddened to hear of Aunt Dot's passing. I always thought of her as 20 years younger than she was. I can't believe she is gone. Tom, I can understand the pain you are going through, I can only hope you can take some comfort in knowing she is with her sisters and Jim now. I will never forget the visits she and Murray shared with mom and dad. I loved joining in with the conversations her and mom used to have. I can see right now the picture of the two of them with their baby Ryan's in their laps. 
    Terry and I enjoyed our visits in Oshawa these last years. I pray your family and Murray can find some peace in these next days.
    Uncle Gerald, I am soo sorry for your loss of another sister. I am sure it was devastating to hear the news. 
    Our love and prayers to all of you!   Love Caroline and Terry
