I had rented a room in Cora's home in my early 20's. Despite the age gap we developed a friendship. Over the many years we kept in touch. It had been a long time since we talked & I was whipping up bread pudding ( something she taught me when I lived with her) when I received a call from Cora where she shared some truly sad news. You opened your home to so many and I can say you will always be in my heart.
My thoughts and prayers go out to your family.

I moved into Cora's basement suite shortly after highschool. She was like my second mom. I will miss her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
