I wanted to express our condolences on your loss from the Lane family. Dad moved into the apt. beside Eleanor at Windermere last July and she has been an absolute delight for us all. The day Dad moved in, I warned her that he whistled a lot and we hoped it wouldn't bother her. Her little face lit up and she said emphatically "I love whistling!!!" We have visited with her many times on the mezzanine and she has always been a joy to chat with. She will be missed by all who knew her!
Our sympathy to you all - Bill Lane and family

Dear Diane,Peggy,John and Families
I was saddened to hear of your Mother's death
She has always been someone I greatly admired.Her gentle ways and quiet wisdom reminded me if my Mom Amy . Although they were not able to see each other often enough they had a special connection -were kindred spirits.
My memories of Nono with my Mom are joyful ones, of a visit to your cottage, oh how I wished we lived closer so I could get to know you all.
In recent years we traveled to London where we shared times with Elizabeth and Graeme and Gordon After Nono moved to London and was closer to Diane I remember the delightful dinner we had at Elizabeth and Graeme's and my times with Nono at Windermere
I wish I could be with you Thursday to celebrate her life.Please know that I will hold her in my heart and you in my prayers. I will miss her

Peggy, John and Diane. I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. I always remember Aunt Nono as a wonderful person who was happy and brightened everyone's day. I think fondly of the times that I was fortunate to visit their cottage at Sauble. She will remain a very positive memory for me. I am sorry that I was not able to visit over these past years. Love Bill
