    Kay, Craig, Sally, and families. We are all so sorry to lose Idabelle. I have so many fond memories of growing up, picnics at the pram docks, going up to camp and of course happy hour at Burt lake. Lots of good fun. I am sure that the Bummy and Doug were there waiting to greet her. May time ease your sorrow.

    I have fond memories of both your parents. Both as a young child growing up on Minneapolis Ave. and as I grew up and came home to visit. They were always very kind. May you find comfort in your memories and know that she is at peace. Bless you all in this time of sorrow.
