Sincere sympathy to all of your family at this time, Colin, Gail, Brian & Ernie. We enjoyed your mother and like Jennette posted, she kept an eye on us at work from her living room window. She was a good friend of our family. She will be missed.

It was a privilege and honour to have Liz as an important part of our lives, first at work, and also as a dear friend and "sister" for 42 years. What a woman!! We will never forget her. Sorry we can not be at the funeral to speak with you in person. We are with you in spirit.

We are so sorry for your loss. We enjoyed visiting and having coffee with Liz when ever we were in Roblin. My mom is missing her already. She had a great sense of humour and lots of stories about her early years in England. Will miss her this summer when we're out. Thoughts and prayers to you all.
