She was a very very caring lady, first met her when Amber was in figure skating and thereafter while I was either coach or trainer as I was certified for both she was there! Her enormous smile and beautiful personality was absolutely infectious. Murray, Sarah and family please accept the heartfelt condolences to you all from the Brownley family!
