Grief shared is grief lessened. Saying goodbye to our beloved mother and grandmother, Doris Whalen, has left a huge hole in our heart. We are deeply grateful to all who reached out to express their sympathy and support. Your kindness and care expressed through messages, flowers, cards, food, calls and your presence lifted our saddened spirits. Father Stephane’s beautiful eulogy and funeral service captured the essence of Mom’s commitment to her family, her faith and her many friends. Lindsey Hannah and Karen Huffman prepared our mother for her final journey with utmost care and compassion. The St. Anthony’s CWL’s guard of honour touched our hearts and the incredible amount of food they provided the family was unbelievable. To the staff of the John Parrott Center words cannot express how much your caring meant especially in the last difficult week. The support of each and everyone who reached out made a difference and and easier to go forward knowing how much she was loved.
