Doug, Dawn, Janet and family. We are sad to hear of Mary’s passing. Having not seen her for so many years, it was a delight to reconnect with her at Streamway and share some old memories. She will be dancing once again with her beloved Bill, to whom I owe so much for advice and direction during my early career years. They were valued members of the Streetsville community. I will never forget her humour and I infectious smile. Hugs Mary, RIP.🙏🏻
