Greg, Jennifer and families, my deepest sympathies on your mom's passing.
I was reflecting on the memories the Demelis and Law family created.

Sometimes after school, I would walk over to your house and have a cup of tea with your mom.
Either your parents or mine would get together at someone's home for a game of some sort on a Saturday night. I think your mom was pretty good with Trivia Pursuit - she even finished the question for you.
Grey Cup parties at our place. One of your parent's friends (I think it was your mom's boss) broke his ankle when he played with Liz's Swinging Skip Ball game after Grey Cup. A couple of times Marg and Amo joined in the celebrations.
I remember your mom saying she was in her glory when Mike's groomsmen and Mike came to your parent's place to wash the cars before our wedding in April 1986. She enjoyed all the good looking men at her house. LOL
Your mom's love of cats.
Your mom welcomed anyone who came to their home.
She had a wonderful smile, laugh and would say "it's nice to see you."
She's probably saying that to your dad and my mom right now!
Cherish all the good memories you made with your parents and keep them tucked in your heart.
Take care.
Melanie (Law), Mike, Drew and Natalie Vanderhorst

So sorry to lose such a great friend. As Lorraine said to me in her last email "we were life long friends and loved each other forever" She will be so missed by her siblings, relatives and close friends. A great classy lady. Condolences to her family.
