Lynn Varga

Dear Phil, Gord, Ken, Valerie and family,
My sincerest condolences at Aunt Florence's passing. I know she has been suffering and was ready to move on and join Uncle Harold. Even so, it is a sad loss. I have great memories of Aunt Florence and Uncle Harold. We had many good times together in Lindsay, at the farm, and during visits to us in Toronto and Woodbridge. I remember them both for their kindness, sincerity, and wonderful dedication to family and community. Best wishes to all of you, love Lynn (Greedy) Varga
