Our sincere condolences on the passing of your dear mother. Being a dear friend of my mother and father (Wilfred and Erma McLaren) I remember her when living on Court Street in Antigonish. She visited a few times with my brother and his wife Helen a few years back and it was such a pleasure to see her again Cecilia and Marie were a big part of our family and the wonderful memories I have of growing up .
