    I am so saddened by the passing of one of my favorite uncles… I was so fortunate to have lived across the street from him my whole childhood, and having the pleasure of seeing him light up our kitchen several times a week. I woke up many a Saturday morning to the laughter of his voice as he sat at our kitchen table with his coffee. He was kind and gentle, and you always knew he loved you, even if he was too proud to say it out loud. He was well known for his special magical peaches, which I looked forward to as a child, often opening up the back door to see an ice cream bucket full of them waiting for us. I will miss him terribly, and send all my love and hugs to Toddy, and hope that he knows how much I truly loved his dad. Warmly, Kim (Klassen)
