Our sympathy to Steven and family for Auntie Sis passing. May she rest in peace and be reunited with the family she loved who passed away too soon before her: Uncle Bob, Donna, Scottie and Bob.
I'll always remember the wonderful times in the sixties growing up together... when we were young.
Love always,
Greg & Pierre

Auntie Sis has been an absolute inspiration of strength, courage and fortitude. She showed all who were in her presence how to put one foot in front of the other through extraordinary life events that most would have collapsed under the weight of.
She gives me strength and I will be forever grateful.
Steven and Alicia, you amaze me with your grace and have received her strength. Steven, your journey...there are no human words.
May God’s peace that passes all understanding find you in the midst of the chaos and pain.
Love Deirdre, John and the Doherty family
