Condolence & Memory Journal

Sue and the entire Wain Family
Our families paths have always seem to cross in so many ways. Both of our Moms were West Hartford girls even though mine was a Mountie but hung around Hall to meet boys, Mom and Sylvia then hung around POW together, as we did in later years. After marriage both then settled in Bloomfield within a mile of each other. I am not sure how many pools Dad purchased from the store but it's at least three. I still remember that last pool purchased for I was sitting in your kitchen at the beach. Dad mentioned the other day that Mr Grant was his first boss at First National in WH center! Sylvia was such a kind and talented lady who will be missed by all. I am positive that my Mom was there to greet her lifelong friend. I am sorry that I missed her funeral but I was out of town. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

To the Wain family, I was sorry to read of your wife/mom's passing. I remember her and she was a lovely lady. It's sad to see another Grant Hill original neighbor's passing. It was a wonderful place to grow-up always had kids to play with and we all knew each other. May she rest in peace.
My prayers and thoughts are with all of you, Trudy Barnard

I have so many amazing memories with my grandmother. Every Sunday growing up we would go over to gram and gramps house and spend the day with them. We had our routine and what we all liked to do. We would head over to the mcdonalds by the airport so we could watch the planes. Then we would spend the afternoon in the pool if it was nice or inside playing with legos if it wasnt. When we were in the pool my grandmother would push my sister and i around on a raft singing "round and round the pool we go," for hours! At night she would cook us our favorite meal, kraft mac and cheese! We would then go onto the porch and pick out which glass plate we wanted to eat off. Gram had a huge selection of plates and collected them throughout her life. Thinking back, its amazing she let us eat orange mac and cheese off them! For a drink we got to chose vanilla, chocolate or strawberry milk and she would make us a cup. After our tiring day she would tuck us into bed and Hannah and i would argue about which side of the bed we got.

I have so many more memories with my gram. We would often go to "the farm" for ice cream and crawl through the hay maze. I believe there were many times she called for us to come out and we wouldnt so she would need to crawl in and get us!

I will miss her dearly but will always have the memories growing up with her by my side. She is truly one of the sweetest most loving people I had ever met and I was lucky to have her as a grandmother.
