    Dear Jim and Steven and family, Please except my deepest sympathy on the loss of your sister. My family owned the cottage next to yours at Cameron Lake and Marianne and I would often visit, making pizzas and listening to records. I have often thought of your family. Take care.

  2. My heartfelt condolences going out to the families of Marianne Newby . Although I never met her, I have the pleasure of knowing her boys . I spend a week or more with Gord deer hunting up north and have for 20 years or more . They say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. If this statement is true Marianne must have been fantastic lady
