Dear King Family:
I was so sorry to hear about the passing of Aunt Elva. I do remember her a little but I hadn't seen her in a very long time. It doesn't matter how long you are blessed with your mom, it hurts so much to lose her. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Lorne & Pat were my dad and mom.
God Bless,
Paula (Pero) Keeling & Family

With love from your Coldwell Banker Family

Ginny: We will miss her dearly. I met her when Raylene was 14 and I just turned 18. We had a special relationship as son in law. We have spent our lives together as family. My few trips to Nova Scotia and family gatherings their was also a special gift. Our families are now mostly gone. We look forward seeing you and Howie and family soon. Raylene would be so happy to see you . Elva is with your mother and family today laughing and carrying on. That s what they did. May they rest in peace. They are looking over us now. Dave Sr.
