So sorry to hear of the loss of your dad. Recently we were reminiscing about what a great neighborhood we grew up in. Super memories for us all.

Heidi Buchanan

Thanks Alison. I made a point of the fact that we as neighbours weren’t just acquaintances, we spent time together as kids adults etc and that really you were all our extended family. It hurts to find out that another member of that family has passed on. We sure did have super memories.
