    My condolences to all of the Smith family on the loss of your mother, Nan, great Nan. She will be missed but not forgotten for all of the wonderful memories I have of her. Rest In Peace Mary


    Although we met Mary only a couple of times, she made a lasting impression on our lives. She was a sweet lady who opened her home to our daughter for a month when she visited with my father. We were looking forward to seeing her this summer. Mary was a dear friend to my father, Ron, who passed a month before her. It gives me comfort to believe they have reunited with their many relatives and friends. Her loss is deeply felt, and she will always be remembered in our hearts.


    My sincere condolences to Mrs, Smiths family. Reading her obituary I realized how lucky I was that I got to meet her and visit her at her beautiful home. She welcomed me into her home with open arms and I was a stranger. I felt like I knew her all my life. I left there with a loaf of homemade bread and Jam. I heard so many stories about Nan from her granddaughter, Ginger. The love that they shared was so special . I know Ginger will miss all their chats but the memories of her will always be in your heart and she will always be with you . She is now in heaven with Pop and free from pain. She will watch over you from heaven. There will be lots of flowers blooming there now and I bet Nan already have her own garden planted in heaven . RIP Mrs. Smith


    My sincere Condolences to Mary's family and friends! Mary made delicious jams, that I was very lucky to have received from my brother Ron Tulk's travels to Newfoundland. Mary had a beautiful caring heart. You will be missed! 💞
