Abe Gonshor & Annie Young - 28 days ago

Dear Roz and family, It is with true sadness that I write this message of condolence to all of you. The loss of such a vital pillar in your lives, at this time in your lives, is very difficult to accept and reconcile. Laury was such a very special person who will leave a huge void. I had the opportunity to get to know Laury over a few short years working hand in hand during the Hampstead Municipal elections and developed a very strong and unique bond that I will always cherish and remember. The small measure of comfort that I am offering, is to remind you that you are surrounded by dear and loving family and friends. We as others cannot be with you during these unprecedented times but send you our love and tons of "virtual hugs and kisses" at this very sad time in your lives. Please accept our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies. Annie & Abe
