JOHN DAVID WOOD
1982 - 2008
It has been 10 years since we lost you. Just after, your cat sat outside your room every night, waiting. Even now, whenever someone sleeps in your room, she demands to be let in. When she sees it isn't you, she leaves, complaining. She's 19 now but she's still hoping you'll come home. We would give anything to have you with us, and we will never stop missing you. Love always, Mum & Dad.
NANCY ESTELLE BUNT (nee Robertson)
May 28, 1927 November 23, 2018
Passed peacefully in her sleep early November 23, 2018. Nancy is survived by her husband of 67 years, and her love of 77, Don; her children, Donald (Lori), Janette (Scott Warne); her grandchildren, Darryl, Kaitlyn (James Hooks), Zachary, Jennifer (Steve Fortuna); and her great-grandchildren, Josh, Michael, Nicole and Anthony.
What to say about mom? We could do the obvious and tell you where she was born, where she went to school and where she worked. We don't think that is necessary. We do want to tell you what a special lady mom was to all of us. We want you to know that even with a severe hearing loss, she didn't miss much. We want you to know that she really enjoyed a good party and threw some of the best. We want to tell you that she was the best wife and mother. We also want to tell you that she could be your best friend and would do anything for you; however, if you crossed her family, you had better watch out.
But mostly, we want to tell you that she will be missed more than she could ever have imagined.
The family will receive friends at the Humphrey Funeral Home A.W. Miles - Newbigging Chapel, 1403 Bayview Avenue (south of Davisville Avenue) for a service on Saturday, December 1st at 1:30 p.m. with a reception to follow in the Rosedale Room of the funeral home. If desired, donations may be made to the Canadian Hearing Society, 271 Spadina Road, Toronto M5R 2V3. Condolences, photographs and memories may be forwarded through humphreymilesnewbigging.com.
Good bye mom, we love you very much!
