We really enjoyed being neighbours with your mom. She loved going to the concerts at Mill Pond Park on Thursday nights and she had such a green thumb! She encouraged us to buy a Richmond Hill Rose so we will always think of her as it blooms. Our sincerest condolences to the whole family.

To The Halliday Family

My condolences on the passing of Gwen. I knew her from the local pharmacy at the Allencourt Plaza and through Hugh Wight. Always a pleasure to talk to whenever I saw her.
