Dear Peggy and Michel,

We had so much fun over the years with Ian’s ‘great-godparents! We enjoyed the many meals, visits and laughter with both Vi and Gerry. Thanks for always keeping the lines of communication open between them and us after we moved. It was so lovely to visit with Vi last summer...she looked great and it was a highlight of our trip to spend time with her.
Big hugs,
Cathy & Larry
