Hi Dave, Doug, Bruce and families...
So sorry to read about your Mom’s passing in today’s paper.
I have many vivid memories of your Mom and how openly friendly and welcoming she always was to me, whether it was at a hockey rink or swimming in your backyard after playing golf with Dave many, many fond summers ago.
While I had not seen her in years, one thing I know for sure is how proud she must have been of all of you and your families.

Hang in there, and we are thinking of you all,

Frank and Sherri Phelan, and family.
