To Daniel, Larry, Raymond and Arlene, I am saddened to hear you had to say goodbye to your Mom. As difficult beyond words, as this is, it is a wonderful comfort to realize your Mom is in the care and presence of her Saviour and Heavenly Father and is enjoying a joyous Family Reunion there with your Dad and Other dear Family she loves, that will never end! As my Aunt, your Momís outgoing personality, smile and contagious laugh still give me a sense of joy inside when I think of her. I grew up as Iím sure You must have too, hearing Trafford Family stories that originated from 308 Cambridge Street in Ottawa, Ontario. Those infamous family music jam sessions in their small home have been recounted many times, from a much loved time. I can envision your Mom wholeheartedly ďpounding outí the familiar hymns and Gospel music on the piano, while my Dad, your Uncle David and your Momís other siblings, all eight of them, played their brass instruments and sang in harmony, filling Grandma and Grandpaís home with a home grown orchestra and choir! Their neighbours who regularly sat out on their porches to listen in, were really blessed - to Godís Glory. What a heritage we share!
Love and Hugs,
Your Cousin, Catherine (Trafford) Welk

I'm so sorry to hear of Marionís passing. Loosing a loved one is never easy. I recently lost both my parents. After my losses, reading Revelation 21:3,4 gave me real comfort. It says: ďAnd he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.Ē And Isaiah 25:8 promises: ďHe(God) will swallow up death forever.Ē Godís word offers us real hope for those who have died. I hope reading these verses also gives you a degree of comfort and hope during this difficult time. jw.org Sunday, January 13, 2019
I am sorry for your loss. Marion will certainly be missed. She was a really nice lady. My prayers are with the family.
