Thinking of the Fallis family today as you lay your dear Mother / Grandmother to rest. ".......Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for your, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner ..... how we shall all laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again." With sincere sympathy...

Dear Margie, John and Mark, I was so sad to hear of your mom's passing. As you know, I lost touch with your mom and dad years ago but I wanted you to know that I never stopped thinking about them and never will. They were the most positive influence on my life and will never be forgotten. Your mom guided me with her kindness, love and understanding through a difficult period. Your dad was my mentor and taught me what was really important in life. Even though it's been over 50 years since they allowed me to share their house with all of you, I see them every day in my mind. Both of them will be lovingly and indelibly etched forever in my heart. May their love story continue ...... Please accept my condolences. Ron Little

Mark, John and Margie. So sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She was always such a fun and welcoming person. I remember dinners at the farm fondly where there was always room for one more, and she was the only person who baked apple pie like my mom. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
