DebbieI'm so sorry for your loss. I worked at London Motor Products years back and got to Ray and granddaughter Kathryn quite well. I had only met Mrs Getliffe a couple of times. Meeting her for the first time she made you feel as though you had known her for a life time. May you all hold your memories close to your heart. Sincere condolences Deb
Barbara BainTo John, Kathryn, ,Tom and Hugh Sincere sympathy to you on the loss of your Mom and Grandma. Keep the happy memories close!
Candy AlexanderDee, John and all the family. I was shocked to hear the sad news. Our family's history goes way back as you know. Although I am at the other end of the province, I am so pleased we were able to have visits and telephone chats. Lorna was always so very alert. Lorna 'loved' and took an interest in everyone and everything. I have often told her she is my biggest 'fan'. I'll miss her. Lorna will be missed by everyone. So many memories I shall cherish. My heart and sympathy go out to all of you. Sincerely, Candy
