    "It is always one of the saddest times when a mother passes. Especially when is it one who raised one of the finest families. I am a friend of Bill and Avis Brodie and I send to them and the entire family my deepest sympathies at this time. She will always be your mother and mother-in-law and you will carry her into the future with you through your thoughts and love for her. It is difficult now and will be difficult for a number of days to come in the future, just know she loved you and is with you every hour of every day. Wishing all the best to you and the family Monica and Thomas Hough"

    "My deepest condolences to the Brodie family and relatives! Mae was my mom, Aldora's closest friend in Mtl N and I grew to love her and called her Auntie Mae.

We are deeply saddened to read of her passing. "
