  • Condolences from Yvonne and I on the death of Jim. Time has slipped past us and we are not going to be able to get to his service. Jim, was an essential part of our lives while growing up. Once a month the families gathered at Grandma Godert and we renewed our news with each other. The Vandenberghe 1st cousins and their spouses are all gone. The Deroches are still alive as well as us. In time we too will feel another grief of those we love to be gone. Take care to all, Rodney and Ken as well. - Posted by: Cecile McMurray (1st cousin ) on: May 19, 2022
