My first memory of your Mom goes back some 6-7 decades ago. She was a young and very passionate R.N. in the I.C.U. at the old Cobourg hospital. For several weeks she supported our family when most needed. Later with Bryan we shared many special nature observations as well as superb home cooked meals. Later on when the family was all grown, she was able to join Bryan on some of his away trips, I was entrusted to look after their beloved "Meline's" care. Louise was always such a thoughtful friend and will surely be missed by many. Audrey
