Online Condolences

So very sorry to hear of Duddie’s passing.
Duddie was a longtime neighbor and friend and I will never forget her great sense of humour and her wonderful smile. We enjoyed exchanging funny birthday cards and I will never forget her special visit on the day of my 90th Birthday.
Sincerest sympathies to the family.
