Shirley, Steve, Jaimie and familes. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your wonderful father, grandfather and great grandfather. I am sorry I will not be able to attend his services but I will always remember him as one of the kindest dearest men. He will never be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with the family at this sad time.
