  1. Samuel Riddell and family

    I wish to offer my sincere sympathy to Vi’s family for their loss. Vi was a good friend and a neighbour of mine in Port Credit. I have known her for over 50 years. She will be missed by many. Sincerely, Sam Riddell, Truro, Nova Scotia

    Vi was a great neighbour. I knew her my whole life. My best memories were of her and Jim, their dogs Brandy and Aurther and the pigeons. My mom would have me take her flowers every mother’s day and cards at Christmas. My kids remember her most from Halloween and from her calling to her dog (which ever one it might have been). She was always busy getting her yard work done – raking leaves, cutting her grass and removing her snow. She was a strong person and always thoughtful and caring and we will miss her. My parents, and my family wish to offer our condolences.
