Dear Tammy and family, you have our deepest sympathy. Not only do we remember you all from CRCA days, but we remember your dad. My late mother-in-law counted him as a friend, and we still share the joy and laughter of stories they shared while he worked on her home many times. Good memories.
Jenn and Izzy and family we are sending our heartfelt sympathy to you We were not aware that today was the viewing it was too late when we heard to attend Sending hugs ❤️ Dave and Nanc
