Dear Audrey
Our heartfelt sympathy to you, Brian and family. I have such lovely memories of visiting with both you and Jack over the years. It was always so exciting when my parents told us you were coming and Daune and I still remember with delight, the fun surprises Jack would produce from his pockets for us. I hope in time your sadness will be replaced with warm memories of your very dear Husband, Father and Grandpa. With Love and Hugs, Nadine & Philip xox
