I was saddened to hear of Aunt Maisie’s passing. I have many fond memories of spending time at her house when she lived in Winnipeg. She was a women of faith and her sense of humor will forever be remembered. Having received many of her letters and cards over the years I can only agree with the statement of how devoted she was to written communication.-a truly lost form of communication in today’s world. Condolences to the entire family who mourn her loss. With sincere sympathy: The Slater Family
