Dear Ruth, Richard, David, Anne and Marcia and families. I was so sorry to hear of your father's passing this past week. Wilf and Liz were such good friends with my mother and father, that they became very much part of our lives too. Their kindness, humour and hospitality were so appreciated and I always remember those great Boxing Day parties at the house.
I know that it meant a great deal to my Dad, to be able to spend time with Wilf during his stay at the Riverbend Place. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all. Judith and Bob

Your family was an awesome family to have grown up with. Our parents were so blessed to have Wilf and Liz as neighbours all those years. We regret that we are unable to attend personally today but you are in our prayers. May the Lord give you peace knowing that your Mom and Dad are together again with Him.

Our love prayers are with you and your family

Dear Marcia & Family,
David & I were sorry to hear of your father's passing. Though we did not know your dad, it sounds like he lived an eventful, full life. It is lovely to see so many happy images of him with his children & grandchildren. Though it is the end of his life, it is beginning of his legacy - may his story live on forever.
