Guest Book

“Hi Don. So sorry to hear of Janets passing. I hope they don’t have to go over any bridges to get her to her resting place.”

“My deepest sympathy to my brother in-law Don and his children, Brad, Pixie and David. on the death of their beloved wife and mother. It’s hard to understand why people are taken from us but find comfort in knowing you were a special part of a well-lived life. May happy memories carry you through this sorrowful time. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Fondly, Aunt Carol”
