Condolence from BETTY ST ONGE on September 11th, 2022 1:47 pm

Dear Robin, Jennifer, Jim and families;
Your Mom was such a special Eastern Star part of our lives. When I met your Mom and Dad, it was my special year as Worthy Grand Matron 2002-03. Sister Lynne was and is my favourite District Deputy Grand Matron from District #10.
Robin you were her very best escort, and both of you opened your home to many Star travellers. My husband and I enjoyed many wonderful meals and a few games of bridge amongst many Star activities.
I shall miss Lynne’s smiles and precious friendship. Praying for all of you for peace that passes all understanding.
May wonderful love and memories be a comfort. With Love and Blessings at this sad time. Betty L. St.Onge
