Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Graham & family: Please accept our sincere condolence in the loss of your mother. Do you remember the time I came across an upside down car on Grant Ave near Chalfont which looked very much like your family car, so I stopped and ran back and knelt on the pavement and sure enough there was your Mom inside and was able to console her until help came. Long after I would always think of Joy when I passed that spot!. I am sure you will miss her very much. Sympathy from ~Elfie Martens & Family. - Posted by: ELFIE MARTENS (FRIEND) on: Sep 15, 2012
