    Sorry for your loss. She was a great lady. She always had room at the table for one more. I was missing Brad one day when we lived in the Creamery apts and found him at the Harveys having milk and cookies. RIP. Hugs to your family.

    We would like to extend our most sincere condolences to the Harvey and Wood families. I was raised in Flesherton and knew all the Wood family in our younger days. Beryl was always such a pleasure to visit with and always made us feel so fortunate to know her. One could write a book on this remarkable lady with the full life she had and that she lived so well, May she rest in peace, so well deserved.

    Beryl was the sweetest lady I had the pleasure of taking care of her in the Meaford Nursing Home. I will never forget her and she holds a very special place in my heart. I was so amazed when I had sometime off work due to an illness and it was a month and half being off work. But the first day back Beryl looked at me and said to me “you are back”. That day I wondered if she really knew it was me as at this time I was wearing a face mask. But later on that nite I talked to Wanda on the phone and Wanda said to me Mom said your back….Well my heart filled with joy for her to remember me. She was a kind, beautiful and a big smile all the time at the home. Heaven has received an very special Angel. I am sending you a kiss as each nite at the home you would blow me a kiss as I put you to bed. RIP Beryl until we meet again. My condolences to all the family and may Beryl rest in peace. Rachael and Family.
