Kimberly Thompson - January 10, 2022

Dear Lisa, Kim, Steven and Christine and your families. It’s hard to believe that she left you all only 15 days after your sister and my dear friend Janet. Now they can hold each other’s hands and get their wings and join their husband and father together. They both came into this world on the same day years apart but left together only days apart. I may not have known your mom very much but definitely had times that I was lucky enough to have a conversation with her when she came to visit Janet and Lisa at Tim Hortons and she was such a delight to talk to. Remember all the wonderful times you had with her and hold those memories close to you. I send my condolences to all of you during this time. Hugs are sent to you all (children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and siblings).
