May is such a sweet and wonderful person. I met her while I was employed with Serenity Seniors Residence. Her sharp wit and loving smile made you feel welcome. Balloons and banners around her door on special occasions gave a spring to her step that was infectious to all those around her. She will be missed, but the memories I have will be kept close. May makes you a better person, without you realizing it. Here's to you May, balloons and Happy Days forever.

I had the pleasure of meeting May when I had the distinct pleasure of caring for Percy at Lakeland Long-term Care. She was one of the most genuinely wonderful person I have ever met in my life. Dan, I believe in my heart that her and your dad will be dancing with the stars in Heaven!

I do remember those Hollyhocks. I have Hollyhocks planted in my garden now because of May I believe.
May had a soft spot in my heart as I worked with her, and her family.

My memories of May go back to when I was a little girl in Sunday school in McKellar. I recall when Nancy and Dan were babies. Over the last few decades May and I enjoyed a lovely, friendly communication where we would share memories. This I will always treasure. My deepest condolences to the family.

I am fortunate to have a couple of May’s quilts. I used to go to the church hall with my Grandmother, Etta McKeown, and watch May and the ladies quilt. I have since become a quilter myself. I would often visit Percy and May when I was visiting from Nova Scotia. They were such a lovely couple. I send my condolences.
