I have many fond memories of Aunt Olive, particularly our visits and parties at the cottage in Bayfield. I remember her love of animals and children of all shapes & sizes. She will have a special place in heaven!

When we were children in Bayfield, Aunt Olive had wonderful pets. She always introduced us to her pets and taught us how to interact with them. She was kind and patient with us and she had so much love for animals. I'm sorry to hear of her passing.

Dear Dick & families:
We were very sorry to learn of Alicia's death. Each of you will have fond memories to comfort you. The last few years have gone far too quickly . . .it seems like such a short time ago at the cottage in Bayfield that she was serving refreshments on her "lovely little tea cart" which was so "handy but she had never used it before" . We had many laughs over the very handy never used cart. Alicia laughed hardest of all. Her death will leave such an empty spot for each of you. Please be kind to yourselves.
I am very sorry that we will not be able to attend the service but will be thinking of each of you.
