Russ and I just got the sad news of Mr Jenks’ passing.
He (and Charline) was the best neighbor - so kind, caring - always had a smile on his face -
Kind words for our dogs, our boys....we are sorry to have not been able to pay our respects to him at the funeral.
We will miss you Mr Jenks. Rest In Peace with your wife- we know you missed her terribly.
In loving memory-
Russ, Veronica, Jacob and Eric
