Mom, I’m sorry I cannot be there today to help celebrate your
Long and interesting life. Although we had our issues at times, you were always my mom no matter what and no one can take that away. give them hell in the bingo hall. I never be afraid to say I won I won. Love you 🥰 Cheryl Anne
grandma, I will forever miss your laugh, zest for life, and of course your love of cheetah print, fuzzy navels, and sparkly jewelry. there are so many hilarious memories that I will cherish, like you putting on lipstick in the hospital
after dislocating your shoulder because you wanted to look nice for the doctors. you were such a fabulous and iconic woman. I am grateful for the time, the love, and the laughter we shared. I will never forget you. I love you 💜
My deepest condolences to the Matthew and Ahee families.
To my dearest mother -in- law.
I loved you for the wonderful mother you were to your children and loving grandparent to your grandchildren.
You loved unconditionally and always expressed it. They knew they could count on you for positive support.
Rest In Peace.
Mom – I know you had an amazing life full of adventure and mystery. Your world travels were always filled with great experiences which you shared with us all. I will always cherish the times we had full of laughter and unconditional love. You have set an example for us to live the very best life we can, to reach out to the world with kindness, wonderment , humour and love. I will carry that love and kindness forward in my heart to share. I love mom and miss you dearly. May you rest in eternal peace.
We met your Mom while visiting our Mom who’s name is also Dorothy.
I loved chatting with her while sitting in the common area. She would always tell me that she liked what I was wearing, and also told my 18 year son she didn’t like his hair, which we thought was very funny. She had a wonderful sense of humour and a fun loving spirit. Our condolences from our family. We will miss seeing her.
Debbie – Thank you for taking the time to share your condolences and your interactions with our mother Dorothy. Your story made us smile. Our mother loved meeting new people, had an eye for fashion and a wonderful sense of humour, which you experienced. We are so happy to know that she had the opportunity to meet such an incredibly caring and thoughtful person as yourself. Thank you for taking time to engage with her, it means a lot to us.
Sending love, thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. I always enjoyed Dorothy’s company when we would visit from the states. She would always visit aunt Adele, Eva and Angie for a nice meal with us.
