So sorry for your loss Sheila. For some reason I have been thinking of your mom the last little while. Wondering where she was and how she was doing. My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

I'm so saddened to hear that Melba has passed away. I enjoyed taking Melba down to bingo, which she so enjoyed every Tuesday at Rapelje Lodge and to the monthly entertainment sing song party, especially when the music was country western. Pearl and Melba would come and sit with us in town square and chat on occasion. She always had a smile and was a lovely lady to be around. She will be sadly missed by myself and all of her Rapelje family. My Sincere Sympathy to all of you.
