Brad and Amber so very sorry to hear that your Mom had passed. I have many fond memories of both her and your Dad. Thinking of you all at this difficult time.

To Brad & Amber,
Please accept our condolences on your mom's passing away. It all happend so suddenly, reminding us that 'death comes like a thief in the night'.
We remember her visit to Belgium, together with her sisters Godelieve and Emily in 2007. The 'three sisters' as we called them were having fun all day long, all the time. Rita's contagious laugh and engaging joyfulness are indelibly printed in on our memories.
May the many cheerful moments help you overcome your sorrow.
All the best to both of you!

Your mom's family on your grand-father Emile's side

To Brad and Amber. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Your parents were beautiful caring people and we were fortunate to have your family for long time neighbours. Ron and I shared many laughs and a few grey hairs ,with your mom and dad while you and Darin and Shelly were growing up on Patricia Avenue. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

So sorry to hear of Rita's passing. We met through the Optimists' initially and ran into her at Seniors for Seniors as well as the Legion. She & I played many games of "Words with Friends" - the last one on Aug. 17. We never finished that game but I have no doubt she would have beat me yet again! A lovely person with a wonderful outlook - she will be missed.

It is with great sadness that we heard about the passing away of aunt Rita.
We were so looking forward to see each other last July but it wasn't supposed to be.
Our deepest condolences to Amber and the family.
Cherish the beautiful moments together.
