    Our deepest sympathies to Alexis, Maggie & Pat, and the entire family. We never met Anita, but our son played hockey with the Wilson boys and Maggie spoke often of her sister and family and was very proud of her and her niece. Her loss is tragic and will be felt by so many people. We knew of Alexis through our sitter’s daughter, Maci and know that she has a good support system to lean on through this difficult time. God be with you.
