Sue Ford-on behalf of my family.
David, Doug, Susan, Paul, John and Families….My sincere condolences on the loss of your Mother. Itâ€™s been many years since we have seen each other but I have wonderful memories of growing up with you and your parents. My Mom, Rog Keddy, is still with us at age 94. When I told her this news she got tears in her eyes. Thinking of all of you at this sad time.
On behalf of our membership please accept our condolences on the passing of June George. June and Jack were loyal hard working Liberals and we appreciate the values they have imparted.
