    David, Mike and families. I’m so sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. I have so many memories of Linda over the years working at Cochrane High together. She was a proud Mom and Grandma who loved to share stories of her family. She was your biggest fan – especially on the baseball diamond. You will miss her so much. My deepest condolences at this sad time.

    Probably never got the accolades you deserved for all of the fine work you did both at CHS and in Morley. l could have never done all of the work we did at Morley Community School if you had not been there to organize us-something you did exceptionally well. A life well lived and work well done.

    David, Michael and families I am sorry for the loss of your mom/grandmother. I did not know your mother but her obituary caught my eye as I am from Stratford and now live in Cochrane. I went to Stratford Collegiate in the 1950’s and on of my teachers was Mr. Barclay. Just wondered if he was your mothers dad.

    David and Michael, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. She loved to talk about you boys and it goes without saying how much she loved you. I worked closely with Linda and appreciated all she did for me on a daily basis, she was such a team player. I certainly have thought of her often since leaving the High School. She will be missed, she made the world a better place.

    David and Michael and families. Our deepest condolences to you all. I am so sorry I could not attend her service but know that she would have been remembered as a wonderful person with a great sense of humour and a great work ethic. I know we always had a good laugh together whenever we had a get together at CHS. She will certainly be missed and know she was proud of her boys and extended families. Thinking of you and your families on this day!!
