  1. From Marie Anna and Robert….Jennie we loved !!!
    To Jack and family!
    From Robert, Charles Marie Paul and John Magee’s in Moncton…

  2. Please accept my heart felt condolences Jack, as well as Linda Marie, Cathy Ann, John, Daniel and your respective families.
    Jennie is a cherished member of our family and we are very proud of all her accomplishments in life! We were so lucky to have such a loving and caring person in our life.
    One of my earliest memories of Jennie, when I was a toddler how this red head was going to « cure » me of my thumb sucking habit by biting down on my thumb! Ouch! She definitely left an impression on me and my thumb, but did not « cure » me of my habit.
    I cannot express my gratitude to Jennie and Jack for taking me into your home during my first year at U of A and all the while raising five children of your own. How kind and generous you were to me!
    It gives me solace to know that Karen Louise was there to great Jennie as she arrived in heaven.
    We love you Jennie and you will be in our hearts forever!

  3. Sending deepest sympathy to all.
