    Our sincere condolences to Carolyn, Christine and family in this difficult time. We have fond memories of meeting you all at your house way back in the early 1990’s, when we were on a road trip to Alberta with my mom, Pierina (Ciochetti), Vince’s aunt. Our daughter Dana was very taken with your dog, I recall, and didn’t want to leave. As my cousin Myrna has already said, it’s sad that we didn’t get to know each other better, but we feel the loss of a cousin nevertheless. Please take care of each other.
    Judy and Pat Truelove
