    Our sincerest sympathy and condolences for Ron and all the family in this time of sorrow and loss. It doesn’t seem that long since I and Ray were attending the Epping SS No. 7 Euphrasia Public School along with Donna and Doreen and Laverne. And I remember going to the little church at Epping and walking (running) home past the Rogers farm. Lots of fond memories. May your memories comfort you.
