Sean and Wendy Hayes
Our condolences to the Kane family … Chris painted our first home and I always enjoyed his sense of humour . He enjoyed the evenings at the ICS helping out and I think it made him feel close to his people… It will be a sad day when we won’t see him at the ICS.

Condolence from Karen McCullagh on November 29th, 2018 8:46 PM

Love from the McCullagh-Cunningham Clann

Arlene, Andrea and Mike, Chris,
We are sad to hear about your Dad, you will all miss him. Andrea and Mike, you were so good to Christy and you could see the close bond you had with him. The ICS will be a very different place without him.
