  5. Dear Douglas Gordon and Janice
    Sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. Eric and Verna had appointments today and I was afraid of the storm . I do drive but don’t stray too far in the Winter. I remember lots of good visits with your Mom and Dad in Winnipeg when I was growing UP. And of course there were all the big family Picnics ;when Grandma Raymer was still allive. It’s hard to say goodbye . I have a scripture from the Bible John14:1-14 that is helpful at times like these HOpe it can bring comfort to you too.
    Love form your cousins Donna Eric and Verna
