Gary and Greg. Please accept my sincere condolences at this sad time on the passing of your Mother. Went through the same experience earlier this year with my Mother at age 96. I have fond memories of our apartment roommate days during the 1970’s Gary, especially the big party at the apartment when Greg and his rock band Gotto play at the event... full volume I might add... to the chagrin of management and other tenants.

What an amazing thing, to be blessed with so many wonderful years of life, and to be surrounded and loved through it all, by the devoted family you created with Uncle Ted. Bravo Auntie Vera, Bravo! I truly believe you are now with mom, and all the others that have been lovingly holding space for you in the next dimension. You will be missed, but you are home, and your legacy most definitely lives on❤️

Dear Ted, Gary, Greg, Sue, Leslie and relations Mom and Dad send their sincere condolences to all of you as do I, Linda,Larry, Mike, Rick. Your mother was such a positive influence in the neighborhood. She brought a great deal of joy to us and she represented a very hard working woman. We loved seeing her in Eaton's and we loved her flair for fashion. I loved how she loved the teenagers in the neighborhood, by opening up her home to a band. She had a wonderful confidence that encouraged all of us. If you wish to contact James and Frances Heffernan, please call 416 755-0373.
