  4. Verbena (Beanie) and I roomed side by side in 1959 at Brandon College in Clark Hall. Later she came to Dand and we taught together there. In the last 10 years we have been gathering with other TTC ‘ers for a luncheon in Brandon. Because of Covid we have not been able to for the last two years. I did not know she was so ill. I am so sad to hear of her passing. She was a great gal and loads of fun. RIP dear friend. Condolences to all her families.

    A group of us were discussing this morning how your parents’ honey was THE BEST honey ever. I remember you kids all running about whenever we went to pick up the winter supply. Hold dear your own memories, so that you can always keep your Mom, and also your Dad, close to your hearts. God Bless.
