    We are so saddened to hear of Ilene’s passing. Although I have not seen Ilene in many years I will always have memories of the fun times we had when I lived in Beiseker.
    Love Wendy & Michel

    When you are sorrowful
    look into your heart

    you are weeping

    your delight

    So sorry to hear about your Mother’s passing. She lived her life full of love for family and love for life. Ilene and Troy had a special connection and he loved her. They are probably teasing each other at the poker table right now.
    We will be down for the funeral so look forward to seeing you then.
    Doug & Diane
