    Ron, Leah, Bill, Karen and families, Please accept our condolences on the death of Al. What a full life he had! He and Mom had such a wonderful time together for so many years, playing bridge, dancing, travelling, and much more. Their companionship was a comfort for me, as I knew that there was someone to care for Mom everyday, just as she was there for Al. Terry and I enjoyed the time we spent with him – he was a quiet, gentle man. We hope that your memories will comfort you.

    We wish to send our condolences to Ron, Bill and families on the death of your Dad, our Uncle Bert. Even though we hadn’t seen him for some time, we did enjoy the telephone conversations we had with him at my Mom’s, (Mildred) retirement home. Our thoughts are with you at this sad time. We know you will cherish the memories of the wonderful long life you shared with your Dad.
    love, Doug and Betty Ames
