  1. Doreen Yochim :

    I offer my sympathies to the children & grandchildren of Frank & Carol. Many years ago, we lived at #3 Sinclair, and our daughters played together.
    What a great loss for a family to have both father and mother leave this world so close together. My mother’s heart goes out to each of you.
    And how extremely unfortunate that for each funeral day you chose, the church was not available. We were sad not to be able to accommodate you on the days you needed. However, our community has prayed for both your parents and for you. And McInnis & Holloway staff will take such good care of you.
    God’s blessings on each of you. Embrace the characteristics of your parents which you most admired and make those characteristics part of who you are. You will then continue to be their ‘lights’ in the world.
    Doreen Yochim
