Thinking of you Steve, & Gary, and your families, at this sad and difficult time and sending you our sympathy. Brenda has joined her beloved George and will be deeply missed by all of us. What great neighbours George and Brenda were (on Lawrence Avenue) with the card parties, bbq's and many shared celebrations. We all have so many happy times and special shared memories. I don't think I will ever forget laughing with Brenda the day she went to put her new boots on and got them out of the front hall closet to go to work, only to see that your dog 'Ernie' had totally destroyed the heels ! Brenda being herself, just found another pair of boots and away she went off to work. That's just how she was ... now Ernie, he was something else. Brenda lit up the room with her smile and her kindness. Love and Prayers to all of you. Love Bill and Cindy xox
