3 Condolences

  1. To Uncle Ivan, Steve, Ivan, and Troy,

    So sorry to hear about Aunt Sue. She was a great woman and I have so many wonderful memories of her. My earliest memory was of Aunt Sue in Newfoundland. I remember going to bed one night and hearing her, my mom and Aunt Bet laughing. The next morning I got up to the same laughter (I guess they were laughing all night long).
    Aunt Sue has helped me out so many times throughout my life, like taking me in during my first Christmas in Ontario and helping with the invitations for my wedding. I will forever be thankful to her.
    She was wonderful and she will remain in our hearts forever.
    Love, Roxanne and Frank

  2. To Ivan and family: First of all, I want to express my condolences to Ivan and all of, Sue’s family. Even though I spoke to Ivan on a couple of,occasions since Sue passed away, I was too emotional to say some of the things I wanted to say. I have known Sue since she was fifteen years old, having met her and Alice at the same time on May 10th, 1957, sixty-two years ago. Little did I know then that Alice and I would become husband and wife and Sue would become my sister-in-law. I have some great memories of her going back to that period of time.One vivid memory was back some fifty years ago when she visited us in NL and spent six weeks with us. This was just after a difficult time in her life. We tried to keep her occupied as much as we could by having several parties during her stay and inviting friends, family and neighbors in on many occasions. I can’t forget her beautiful smile and her pleasing personality while always made her the center of attention. I remember at that time going all over the city looking for a pal o’ mine bar for her because she wanted one. I believe I did fine one after visiting about twenty stores. We have great memories of Sue and Ivan when they visited us in NL and also when we visited them in Ont. We knew we were always welcome when we went there and Sue made sure that I got plenty of food because she knew that I loved to eat. The last time we saw her was about three years ago at which time she cried when we were leaving. She was much more than a sister and sister-in-law to Alice and me, but she was also a very special person in our lives. Sue was a great family person as she would always speak highly of her family every time she talked to Alice on the telephone. She often said how fortunate she was in having Ivan to look after her. We know he took good care of her up to her last second of life. Alice and I often talked about that her life could be shortened because of health issues, but we never gave up hope that maybe she will beat the odds. Ivan, you can take comfort that you did all you possibly could do for her up to the end. I hope you will be comforted by those around you. I know we will still be a family for ever and that we will always keep in touch with each other. Even though Sue is no longer with us, the great memories of her will linger in our hearts and minds for ever. It was extremely sad for all of us when she passed away, but I’m sure Sue would want us all to carry on our normal lives. We owe it to her to do that.

  3. To: Ivan, Steven, Troy & Ivan and family
    I was so sad to hear of Aunt Sue’s passing. She was such a wonderful, kind and loving woman and I’m sure you will miss her very much. I have so many memories of Aunt Sue; the oldest one is sitting on her bed when I was (much) younger, watching her put on makeup and thinking how cool it was to have an aunt who was not really that much older than me. Although I didn’t see her often, whenever she came “home” to Newfoundland, I enjoyed her company. It was such fun to listen to her stories about growing up with her siblings, especially the ones about her and my mom. I remember Aunt Sue’s voice, her laughter, but most of all, her beautiful smile. The smile that could light up a room, the one that made you feel special and loved.
    I know you were all recipients of her endless love and her beautiful smile and hope that your memories of your wife, your mom and the wonderful times you shared will help you during this difficult time.
    Rest well Aunt Sue,
    Love always,
    Corinne
