    Sorry to hear of his passing. Was a absolute pleasure helping to paint their house. A fun atmosphere. Between Denis and Gwen, always a joke to tell. Denis would always give that big smile and a wave anytime we passed each other on the road. (curly’s painting – former business owner). Take care Gwen.
