Dear Beeksma family. I have such fond memories of your mom and dad and what good friends they were with my parents,  Lutz and Sita Van Asselt. May  God give you comfort and grace during this time of mourning.  Mark and Tina Van Asselt Van Beveren.

I do not know any of Alice's family but she was a great scrabble player.  I have played with her several times at the Sr. Games scrabble, also at the scrabble tournaments we used to have at the Library, she was a good friend & will be missed by all who knew her.  Also enjoyed viewing  her exhiibits at the Fall Fair, she always had so many things she had knit etc.  I send condolences  Evelyn Edmonstone (Carol Seaman's Mom)

Glenda - I am thinking of you at this difficult time.  The loss of your mother will make you lonely for the stories that would otherwise be shared at a gathering of family, friends. and neighbours.  Please know that your childhood friends remember you fondly and fold you in our hearts.
