Dear Roma, Stephen,Carol,Kevin,Bryan and families: Debbie and I are very sorry to learn of John's passing. I remember the many times our families got together, usually at holiday times and often at the home of Harold and Gwen McGill. Those memories are warm and comfortable. Unfortunately, we will be away this coming week and unable to attend John's service. Please be assured that we will be there in spirit and wish you peace.
