Condolences to the Simpson family on the loss of their mother/grandmother/aunt Doris. I first met them when we moved next-door into their little old house in 1979 and spent almost 20 years growing up with Trevor - school/dinners/parties/hanging-out; camping trips to the hunting cabin around Denbigh; in the camper to various parks; swimming in the local pond; helping pack the breezeway full of firewood for the winters; and numerous rides on the 4-wheelers and snowmobiles all over the neighbourhood.We've all scattered around since then, but there were at least 2 times where I was back for a visit to Colborne and happened to run into Doris in the IGA and just downtown. Each time "Hi Mike, how are you, long time no see". :`(

So very sorry for your loss. I will always remember seeing Doris' laughing, smiling face at the Salem church suppers. I had a lovely visit with her just a couple of years ago, she will be missed.
