    • Notes  Died:
      • Good-by my Aunt Francie. You are my first aunt to die. I am sorry you suffered from the agony of cancer. Your battle is now over. Peace be with you. I am deeply sorry for my Uncle Ian and my cousins, Heather and Doug. Your love for Aunt Francie was so strong and I know you will miss her deeply.

        My Aunt Francie is the sister that my Mom and cousin Bob fed mud pies iced with white leaded paint. The creative meal caused Francie and Rolly (Bob's brother) to have their stomachs pumped.

        I remember Francie and Ian coming to the hospital to greet my son, the first grandchild on our side of the family. They were both so truly happy for us and made Paul, Michael and I feel so special.

        Francie was a talented piano player. In my childhood, we would drive to Edmonton for Christmas. All my Aunts would gather around my grandparents' piano. Francie was accompanied by three violins and a clarinet. The rest of us would sing. These memories of Christmas singing are some of my most favourite recollections.

        Last Christmas, Francie hosted a family sing along. Like my parents did many years ago, we drove our children to Edmonton. I was so grateful to have the opportunity to share and show my children the talent and warmth of my mother's family at Christmas time. Thank you again Francie. We will miss you.
