  1. On behalf of the Société de Police – IPD Adam & Edward, our condolences to the family and friends of Theresa (Anderson) Spiegl, on learning of her passing.

    To Donald and the family we offer the following thought at your time of your matriarch’s passing on: It was written for moments like this that the mother memories that are closest to one’s heart are the small gentle ones that we have carried over from the days of our childhood. They are not profound, but they have stayed with us through life, and when we are very old, they will still be there.
