    Please know that our hearts go out to you and the family, as you face this most difficult time. What an amazing thing it will be when those asleep like your loved one will be woken up and come back to life, once and for all! This is a hope that keeps us going, because we too, have lost many of our loved ones.

    Audrey & family – when we read about Eric’s passing, many wonderful memories came back of the Highways curling funspiels and baseball tourneys and the laughter and good times that were had (and perhaps a beer or two)!
