My sincere sympathies go out to all your families at this time.
Growing up on Edgar Avenue in Coquitlam next to your family
gave me the opportunity to get to know your mom as a very kind,
loving Christian woman. Her smile and her caring were genuine.
She and our mom were very good friends throughout the years.
May she rest in peace. My prayers & thoughts are with you…

Just wanted to say how much we all loved your Mother, our Auntie Lynn. Growing up side by side on Edgar, all the great times, she was very special to me and to the whole neighborhood. She will be sadly missed by us all. Sorry I cannot be with you today, I would have loved to see you and to be there for you, but I will be with you in spirit. Roxanne, I think of you often and hope that you are okay. Miss the old times. Love to you all, Nicky
