We will miss you so much Grandma Connor. You were the best friend to Mom and Dad and a wonderful Grandma to our kids even though you weren’t really their Grandma. You were always interested in what the kids were doing and such a warm, kind presence in our lives. We love you. All our love to Linda, Ron, Jenny, Dan, MacKenzie, Steve, Darcy, Kevin, Liv and Emily.
My deepest sympathy to all of Janet’s family. I worked with Janet at Laurier and had many enjoyable meals with her over the years with our dinner group. She will be sadly missed by us all. We’ll raise a glass of wine to toast her amazing life when we next meet.
