sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing my thoughts are with you
Uncle Doug & family- we are sorry you have lost Aunt Orla. I have fond memories of visiting your family as a child in Mossbank, there was always lots of activity & fun to be had. I especially remember playing the old pump organ. As the years passed and we moved to Calgary our trips home to Moose Jaw we always paid a visit to Uncle Doug & Aunt Orla’s home. Aunt Orla was always interested in our family. We enjoyed coffee & cookies & great conversation. Now we will miss Aunt Orla but our visits will continue to see Uncle Doug.
Until we meet again Aunt Orla rest in eternal peace.
Love Pat & Carrol
