Bernice and families
I’m sorry to hear of Marie’s death. It brings back many memories of Marie and Gord
as far back as the 1950’s when the King family and Sant family were neighbours and we
had many occasions together including snowmobiling, fishing, electrical work, or just visiting.
May they both Rest In Peace
