Will Dunk - September 8, 2021

On behalf of my mother Coralee, brother Charles (Charlie), and myself, we offer our condolences to the Callahan family. Growing up three doors down on Ontario Street from her homestead, there were many hangouts there with her grandsons Jordon, Tyler and their late brother Nick, alongside fellow neighbour Brandon, playing video games in her living room / den, all kinds of games outside in the yards (even in the trees), and even playing street hockey in the driveway. There was even a Easter egg hunt that I can remember around the house one year my brother and I were invited to take part in. I will never forget her making fun of her grand kids in the best loving way possible because they all teased each other and they undoubtedly received some of her best personality traits for their own. My brother growing up had a paper route, whose Mary's house was part of his route and we always knew, if he was late coming home for supper, he was always at her place hanging out and chatting it up with Mary and/or everyone else there at the house. Lots of love.
