Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • My deepest condolences to Ray, Gail and family, also to sisters Antoinette and Roslyn. I remember Jean for her sense of humor and her love of having fun. She enjoyed the simple life. I often enjoyed Jean and Mike’s company playing cards until all hours of the night at her sister, Stella’s. May God give you the comfort and peace that you seek and may the soul of your loved one rest in peace. - Posted by: Carol Jumaga (Hrabi) (niece) on: Jan 07, 2015

  • I remember our fishing adventures when I was young. I always enjoyed and looked forward to fishing with my Aunt and Uncle. They sure did know what they were doing! Happy memories. I am sure my Aunt is fishing right now in heaven with my Uncle Mike and Dad! May you be at peace Aunty Jenny. - Posted by: Susan Walker (Niece) on: Jan 07, 2015
