Always will have fond memories especially the Sunday barbecues on Pine Cove and the croquet games which we all enjoyed. Tante Gaye and Om Arend were very dear to me and always had encouraging words and will always remember the Sunday evenings when they visited our old house on West Fifth.. Om Arend and my Dad would lite up big cigars much to the chagrin of my mother and Tante Gaye. Also special memories of Killbear Park camping and later the cottage on Pleasant Island. Sad to say that I will not be at the funeral as Iam in Florida with my grandchildren but will be thinking of all of you.
