  7. Alex and Family,

    Gillian always had a smile to share when you would meet up with her. I worked at CAA Travel many years ago and knew her from the travel agency. Always remember her love of travel and seeing the world.
    Years later, I would see her smiling face greeting us at the door a lovely home during the IODE Christmas Home tour event. Keep your treasured memories close to your heart during these sad days, they will sustain you.
    God Bless you.

  8. Dear Alex – we were so sad to hear about Gillian. I am so glad I got up to see her a couple of times. The last time she was sleeping and I woke her up and we had a nice visit. That was in September. She was telling me she was on the list for Meadowview and I told her I would visit her there. We had lots of good times that I will remember when we went to conferences and were roomies, lots of stories and laughs late at night when we should have been sleeping! I plan to be there on Saturday. Take care Alex. Marion and Gord

    I really was shocked and saddened to hear of Gill’s passing and sorry I wasn’t able to make the funeral. Gill and I had many great talks and laughs throughout the years we worked together. She had such enthusiasm for travel and her family and we missed her when she retired. Alex, I know how hard it will be to be alone – you were so devoted to one another. I will give you a call in a few days.
    Best to all, Sylvia Foreman
