Today we take a moment to mark the passing of my aunt. She passed away a few days ago and today is her memorial service.
She was an amazing woman. I remember her as being gentle, sweet, kind and caring.
She was a multitalented woman. She sang alto in the Southern California Mormon Choir, she trained in piano at the Royal London Conservatory of Music.
In her church life she served in many capacities, including Primary President at Primary Children's Hospital and Matron of the Los Angeles Temple.
One thing that she was most proud of (besides her family) was her Canadian heritage. Anyone who knew her knew in short order that he was Canadian.
So just for today, let's celebrate Canadianhood. Eh?
