Sending my deepest condolences to all the family. I know this is a great loss for you all. Auntie Maisie had always had a great presence in my life even though we were miles away from each other. She never missed a birthday or Christmas without a card or note. She will be truly missed. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Relation: Long Time Friend

Sixty-two years of friendship have meant so much and the memories will carry on until we meet again.

Relation: Winnipeg friend

Maisie was a dear friend to my mother over the many years. We enjoyed reading her letters and Christmas cards over the years and Maisie send the family a remarkable letter (as always) when she was notified about mom’s passing in 2013. It was sad to receive news of your mother’s passing as it brought back such fond memories. My brothers, Bruce, Alex Tom and I send our sincere condolences on your loss and may you find peace in knowing that she lived such a full life that brightened the lives of so many.
