    Each day I walk a dog in Meaford and I would pass a nice woman with her dog and we would exchange hellos and niceties. I was sad to hear yesterday that she had passed away. I will miss seeing her smile and her wee dog.

    We were so very sorry to hear about Beth’s passing. For many years, she and Ron were our neighbours on the corner of Vera and Amy Streets. Beth was a great worker and took great care of Ron and his mother as well as the house, the yard and her job. We recently moved back to the neighbourhood and it was a pleasure to meet Beth out walking her dog each day. We always stopped to chat. I will miss her and her sweet wee dog.
