Coral was a very special lady and will be missed not only by family and friends but by the entire community. She was a very sweet lady with a ready smile. She always seemed happy and was a very strong woman. My deepest condolences John, however Coral will live on in your heart and through your memories as well as in the hearts and memories of many.
She is in a far better place and no longer has to live in pain. R.I.P Coral

We have been neighbours of Coral for the past 7 years. She was one the sweetest persons I have ever met. Coral, in her mid 80s, took the time to knit prayer shawls for both my in-laws who were younger than she! She was so kind. I will miss her wave as she drove past our driveway. Rest in peace Coral.

Coral was a lady in every sense of the word - kind in both thought and deed. She was a wonderful friend and neighbour, always smiling, always positive in her outlook. She enjoyed helping others and was always so appreciative of any small favour. Our frequent chats and computer sessions will be sadly missed. Good-bye to a very special lady.

Dear Johnny and family, On behalf of myself and Coral's dear friend Edith from Winnipeg, please accept our most sincere condoleances. Sorry I couldn't be there for you because I was out of the country at the time but I knew my heart was in Manitoulin. A year has passed since Coral left us and it has been strange not to get her birthday wishes or news from the island she loved so much. Be courageous, Johnny! I wish you'll remain in Manitoulin for a while. I promise I will keep in touch and visit. Take care, Jean-Pierre Weilbrenner.
