I went back up to see Mom today to give her a Christmas Card holder that Auntie Gladys had given her. I hadn't much time for much of a visit, however long enough for a kiss and a promise of another longer visit next time around.
This morning I had called my dad's first Cousin, Bill Cutting, as his wife has been very ill the past couple of months. I was calling to see if I could give him some relief so he could go out for a bit, however when I had called he told me June was no longer in pain as she had passed last evening.
A third loss of a family member in the past month. My heart saddens for the losses our family has had to bear lately.
I called my family members to let them know of the upcoming visitation and funeral arrangements this weekend. My brother called me back later to say maybe we could take a food tray over for Bill and his family from us. This afternoon I made a large cheese tray, along with crackers, and Rob drove me over to drop them off to Bill.
It was very sad for me to see Bill's pain. I felt his pain even though not to the depth he is feeling it. June was a lovely lady, and she will be sorely missed by her family and friends.
Bill & June were best friends with a couple from Kitchener, as they themselves lived in Cambridge for years before retiring to Sauble Beach. The couple, Doug & Bernice, with Doug being my Bank Manager for many years from when I lived in Kitchener at a young age of 20 years old. A very small World our Worlds can be at times, can it not ?
The next few days will be very busy with last minute details to finish up with the Santa Claus Parade before it takes place Saturday evening at 7 pm, as well as dealing with our usual daily life. There are days I am tired before the day even arrives, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
