Dear Leah, Rob, Henry, Ed and family. I heartbroken to hear of Mary's passing. We were away in Halifax visiting our oldest when I heard the news, so sorry we missed the service. Mary was a wonderful lady, I have many fond memories of her. It was so neat that our boys ended up sharing the same birthday as her. She was a great friend of my parents, Cathy and Les Glanville too. She will be fondly missed. Our deepest sympathy to you all.
