  3. To Dick and family
    Sorry to hear of Marys passing. Many things have changed since we all lived in Mrs. Leitch’s
    house in Hillsburgh some 55 years ago. We moved to Orangville to Guelph and then back to
    Hillsburgh,Meadowview place senior apartments.on the edge the farm were Mary grew up..Sorry
    to say Doreen died April 2019.
    I do remember the move to Cocharen and Mary’s ” sloppy Joes ” meal then turn the truck around
    and head south for another load of cattle.

  4. My sympathy to Richard Buckles, and Family.
    I am very sorry to hear of Mary’s passing, she was a beautiful person. I have often wondered how both Dick and Mary were doing after their move to Sudbury. Especially when driving past their homestead. I remember their beautiful, well kept garden and flowers they had a passion for their property .

    Please accept our most sincere condolences on the passing of Mary. She was a force to be reckoned with, and had the most infectious laugh, especially when telling stories. We will remember fondly the many times spent around the extended family dinner table sharing such happy times.
