  • Barb Wall Caron family, my apologies for such an overdue message of condolance.
    Your mom was a good friend of my mom, Ann. As part of the Grandma's prayer group, they met consistently over the years. Now reunited in Heaven!
    The 2 of them would also venture to EC or Ladysmith on shopping trips. She was a sweet lady!
    May God grant His peace & comfort to you all.
