Ann, we were so sorry to hear Neil had passed away. Years ago when Manitoba hosted Canada Day Neil brought down a bunch of wheat stalks to use for decorations. I still have one in a vase above my front windows and so I think of you both when I look at it. . Please accept our sincere condolences and our thoughts and prayers are with you, Bart and Jean Hawkins, .Brandon.

Auntie Anne, James, Mark & Susan and boys; We were sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Neil. As a young kid I remember our families spending time together creating memories that I continue to cherish. There are no words that can remove the hurt, but through time and God’s love and support it does ease. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
