Condolence: Charles, my sincere condolences! I enjoyed the conversations I had with you and Judith about travel and such. I still have the painted tins that you and Judith gave to me on one of your returns from Oaxaca. It is here in my office. I often look at them and think of you. Judith will be dearly missed! My thoughts are with you Charles.

Condolence: Charles and Barley,

Judith has a continuing impact on my life. Her support and teachings were profound for me. I doubt she realized how significant. These learnings I've shared with my daughters and now granddaughters. When I think of Judith I think of wonderful knitted sweaters, cats, music, books and an appreciation of the fullness of life.

We have, and will continue, to think of you often especially when in our kitchen. Do you remember the countertop?

I wish you both well. Life will undoubtedly lose some flavour but I hope you can continue to enjoy the richness she brought. All the best, Lloydene and Gregory
