There are no words only a mix of emotions. Your mom’s (and dad’s) visits to Toronto made the Macdonald girls always so very happy. Birthdays, holidays and special occasions - your mom was always there - so happy to see you all.
We are sad for your loss but know she is in a place where she can watch over you all and continue to be part of every occasion.

-Valerie and Doug Skeffington and family
