Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • Irene, Craig, Andrew and family I am very sorry for your loss. My fond memories of Dee are sitting together with him and Irene on the black geo tubes enjoying the sunset and a glass of wine. He was always happy to see me and never complained when I needed assistance. I was impressed with his flair for cooking, his fried rice dish was the best I ever had. Dee has gone to a better place. May memories and time bring you comfort. - Posted by: Mary Verhaeghe (Friend and Neighbour) on: Oct 07, 2020
