A Final Goodbye

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

This past weekend, Terry and I spent an emotionally difficult three days at the cottage. Along with the Ingrams and the Lindsays, we said goodbye to my mother and my brother.

Saturday afternoon, we all gathered together to drink a toast to both Bob and Joan, and then trekked over to my cottage to scatter their ashes. Mom and Bob will now, forever, reside beside the clear blue waters of Kimball Lake, on the land they loved so much. They sit at the cottage and on the beach between the Ingrams and the Lindsays.

My thanks go out to my partner Terry, to Steve, Terri, and Brittany Ingram, and to Don & Jean Lindsay and their son Graeme and their daughter Pam.
