When she went to work, Jackie became a respected professional in the world of publishing. You have held me up when I had no defences left and I know that you will continue to do so. William was a wonderful, sweet boy. Finally, and perhaps the key to her happiness, was her whimsical approach to life.
She always had a way of making any bad situation I was having into a positive one. It means so much to us that you all could spend this evening with us. This whole situation had really made us all so much closer. After a day of fishing and swimming, we would set up camp and spend hours talking about life. Whatever uncertainty I felt about life and death and reasons for living were removed when the Lord came back into me, and renewed my spirit.

My family wishes to express our heartfelt thanks to all those who have given their support, compassion and love throughout this very difficult time. As I watched him kicking and screaming, I knew there was No. Mary joined the Drumheller Town Hall staff in 2000. She had a warm smile and made an effort to connect with everyone she met. Even better, no one ever had a bad word to say about my grandmother.
The speeches are divided into three sections. Her love of history became a devotion to historic preservation. A mother pours a lot into her first born, starting with expectations, and mom would have expected me to write about her now — as I did with my dad when he died almost 13 years ago.
