    Deepest condolences to Siegfried and Rose and their families. I have many happy memories of the hide and go seek games we used to play late at night in the family yard. I also remember the military games the boys played on the coulee banks. Your family lived across the road from us at Uncle Frank’s place. In later years, when I was working in Barrhead, Rose and I would get together on the weekends and play cards. May you continue to treasure all your memories.
