To the family Dawson

Marcia was very devoted to all and each of you.

She was a wonderful friend to me. I  will miss our lunches . I will always think of her when I see/eat lemon pie.

She had a kind and welcoming heart to all she met. 

I will miss her very much.

Your Mother was a wonderful woman, and you will miss her dearly.  Hold tight to the memories.  Sorry I was unable to attend the service as we are in Florida.  Hugs to all.

Sending condolences to all of the Dawson family in their bereavement. I remember Marcia and Huntley well, and all the children.  We were all about the same age. (I was called Betty as a child - daughter of Harry and Eva Wall of Lucknow (siblings Arthur, Joyce, Marilyn and George).  I recall lots of summer days spent at your farm on the 2nd concession - I think it was somewhere near S.S. #9 schoolhouse. You will treasure beautiful memories of your lovely Mom.  So sorry for your loss.
