Andrea Bubb - February 12, 2020

Although many miles kept us apart, my Tante Olga always held a special place in my heart. Her house was a home away from home. My favourite childhood memories were of her wonderful garden, listening to her ABBA records, fishing off the dock on Rice Lake, their dog and my favourite dog, Maxi, my Onkel Louis devouring every bit of her cooking and the most comfortable feather tick beds you could imagine. To her these were just everyday things, but it’s these memories I took with me on my journey through life and gave me comfort. Thank you for these memories Tante Olga, but now it’s time for you to be taken care of on your next journey. Rest In Peace. Your niece, Andrea.
