  1. Michelle,

    Thank you for allowing us to share in David’s last evening. We had a great visit with you both. David was a great guy to live next door to – especially when he was making perogies! Until we meet again Big Guy! Michelle as always we are only a call away.
    Love you!
    Paul & Dawn

  2. Richard, Cathy, Tracy and families.
    So sorry to hear of the loss of your brother, father, and grandfather. He was a great person when we knew him in his younger days, and I am sure he is in a much better place now. Our thoughts and prayers are with you .
