    Dear Lenore, Leo, Richard, Darrell and your families,

    We are at our winter ‘home’ in La Peñita Mexico, so unfortunately we won’t be able to be present on the 30th. Your uncle Elroy has kept us informed about your father’s hospitalization and death. Our memories of “Norm” are all good ones. And our hearts go out to you as you miss him, mourn him and celebrate his life.
    Love and hugs,
    Pastor Ken and Miriam
