Condolence: Dear Cathy,
It has been so many decades since we worked together at The Roman Room. I fondly remember our friendship which included may discussions about family. You were so proud of yours and happily told of the McFarlene adventures. I am so sorry to hear of your husbands passing. I know he will be missed but you are surrounded by a loving family who will see you through this difficult time. Much love, Karen Toffanello

Condolence: Dear Mrs. McFarlane - Terrol & Family......

Although I only met Mr. McFarlane once I can tell you that I still keep close to my heart my Easter visit to your home and meeting both Terrol's Mom and Dad while I was in college.
You willing and graciously opened up your home to me with very little notice.

Mr. McFarlane made me feel welcomed and like one of the family. His kindness, teasing and sense of humour at my lack of preparedness for a "Northern Easter' still makes me smile. Oh I looked stylish - just not dressed for the cold, snow, sleet and wind during my spring visit! Oh he had fun with that.......

Just know that when you speak of him with stories, laughter and with tears I am sure will be right beside you always.

Big (((HUG))) to you all - and my condolences to the passing of a fine man. He leaves a wonderful legacy for his grandchildren and children...
