  • Betty & Bob Mahar says:

    Knowing all of you, and yet not knowing you well enough, I struggle for words.
    I share in the sorrow of losing a mother. Thinking she would always be there, and yet knowing that those were false hopes. Then when the devastating news becomes a reality,dealing with the shock is heartbreaking.
    Now , I shall remember the great trip we had to 108 Mile house,& the good times we had picking strawberries.
    God Bless you all.
    Betty & Bob
