Sincerest condolences to dear Rita, Larry, Brian and your families. There were surely many times when we were in your yard getting eggs, water or both! We also remember all the times at the rink with our boys playing or practising hockey. We know you'll miss your dear husband, Elmer and dad. Most sincerely, Wendy & Larry
