…so very sorry to learn about Laureen’s passing…as Lester Beach neighbours, we could often see her busy tending to flowers in her gardens along our walks…such a courageous battle she fought with Ralph always by her side…a quiet soul who will be missed…
My sister Laureen has been with me all my life and has been my support whenever I needed her. She was vibrant, generous, caring, and compassionate and her generosity extended outwards to all her family and friends.
For the rest of my time on earth, I will feel Laureen’s presence in my heart. Go with God my beautiful sister. You have been such a blessing in my life. All my love until we meet again.
Ralph, We were so very sorry to hear of Laureen’s passing. She was a very special person and so kind. We remember when she gave us some Lupins for our garden. Laureen was quite the gardener, growing vegetables as well as flowers. We always had some conversations about them.
We are thinking of you and your family, at this time. Hopefully we will be at our cabin in the next few weeks and will drop in to see you.

I have just read about Laureens passing. This definitely shocked me for she was so fit and healthy. I have not seen Laureen in many years but I have always remembered her. She was a great friend to me but sadly we drift apart and go other ways.
Friends are never forgotten, and never will be. They stay with us .
Please forgive the late posting of this comment Ralph. I was so sorry to hear of Laureen’s passing. You were both so friendly and welcoming to Ed and I when we moved to Hillside. I know she will be sorely missed. It’s these very difficult times that we come to realize just how important the support of friends and family is and I am sure this will be a comfort to you. I know that Laureen will be remembered by many for the caring and giving person that she was.
Sincere condolences, Janet and family
