From: Gail Fredricksen
Relation: Cousin

Aileen was remembered fondly on her last birthday and will be remembered for her warmth extended to all whom she met. She gave of herself from her very early years until the end. Her passing will leae a tremendous void with her brother, Robert of Alberta and her sister, Gladys of Nova Scotia. Time and distance do not always favour the bereaved. Gail
