Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Virginia, Pearl and Families - our sincere condolences on the passing of Helen.Your Mom and Dad were both wonderful people. We enjoyed their company as neighbors of Joan and Ron as well as part of our curling league. Your Mom was always so much fun! And your Dad so obviously loved and appreciated her. Their story, in their later years, was incredibly sad as your Dad struggled to care for her. They will both be so happy to be together again in a better place. - Posted by: Barb and Ken Zacharias (Friends) on: Mar 02, 2022
