  1. Dear Stephen, Sheri and Michael & families,
    I had coffee with Cathy Macdonald(Wilkie) on Saturday and she told me about your Dad’s passing. I’m so very sorry for you and your families. The picture of him makes me smile, he looks just like I remember him, but both his and my hair are now the same colour. Time sure passes swiftly. Sending love, big hugs and my deepest condolences your way.
