The family would like to thank all the doctors for their compassion and expertise: Dr. Paul Caldwell, Dr. Orit Freedman, Dr. Vickie Martin, Dr. Mark Niglas, Dr. Sunit Das, Dr. Kent Tisher and Dr. Francesco Mulé.

Jackie Kennedy Gedling - April 8, 2024

"Katherine has been a cherished Canadian Cousin of mine (our Scottish grandfathers were brothers) over a great many years and on the (sadly too few) occasions that I managed to visit my cousins in Toronto, Cobourg or London, she always gave me such a great welcome and was always so kind and caring and always had such a positive attitude to life. I have been in awe as to how she has managed to face her devastating last illness with such courage & fortitude and such cheerfulness, despite everything she must have been going through. I offer my deepest sympathy & condolences to Jim, her dear sister Janet, her sons David & Stephen and their wives & her grandchildren Maple, Noelle, Sam & Jake. I have so appreciated being kept up-to-date over the years, with news of family members via letters & emails (with photos) latterly, from 'across the pond’ with glimpses of Canadian life, fascinating & intriguing to read and often very different from customs or traditions in England. I will miss her so very much and cherish such fond memories of her, both when I have managed to see her & dear Janet & Jim & her lovely family in person and latterly sharing such wonderful email exchanges with her. They have been very precious times. With love and prayers, Cousin Jackie Gedling (in England).”

Maureen Moloney - April 8, 2024
