Condolences Leslie and Family. Thinking of you in this difficult time.

From: Peter & Debby Rybchinski

Sincere heartfelt condolences to Sharon’s family and all my cousins uncles and aunties. May the memories you have bring you peace during this difficult time. 2 Corinthians 5:1-8; New International Version (NIV) Awaiting the New Body 5 For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands. 2 Meanwhile we groan, longing to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, 3 because when we are clothed, we will not be found naked. 4 For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. 5 Now the one who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come. 6 Therefore we are always confident and know that as long as we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord. 7 For we live by faith, not by sight. 8 We are confident, I say, and would prefer to be away from the body and at home with the Lord.


From: Ruth Astbury

From: Katie, Krista and Kevin Harrison and family

Dear Nadine, Joe, Brenda, Susan, John, Tim and your families as well as Sharon's family; It is with great sadness, we heard of the passing of your dear Sharon. The Reid family have been our friends forever beginning with working with Joe & Nadine at the Hospital in Markdale then Susan & Sharon and the entire family babysitting Krista from a few months old and Kevin when he was born. They often stayed overnight with Reid family. Susan & Sharon taught baby, Krista how to walk... they'd sit apart on the floor and have her take a couple of steps into their arms. One time after an overnight stay, Krista announced "we're having eggs for breakfast, Kevin you get the eggs and we'll crack them in the frying pan and cook them!" They've been good cooks ever since! LOL. We know Sharon will be sorely missed by family, friends and neighbours in the communities she has lived. Hugs to all of you as you say your final good byes to Sharon tomorrow. xo

From: Lou and Brenda Vanderploeg

Dear Tom and Family, Please accept our heartfelt sympathies upon the passing of your Wife, Mother and Grandmother. Remember her in the following poem: I Am… I give you this one thought to keep- I am with you still- I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints of snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am the sweet uplifting rush, Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not think of me as gone- I am with you still in each new dawn.


From: Kim and Al Rice

Our deepest sympathy, all of you are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time. With love Kim and Al
