Relation: Childhood friend of son Keith

My first memory of Caroline was as ‘Mrs Martin’ when she resided on 6th St with her children Keith and Shari. Keith and I became friends in elementary school and our friendship was evident for many years. One summer I got an invite to visit in Osoyoos and between the two growing boys, we almost ate everything edible at her home. I had a great time hanging out with Keith those weeks, on the beach, riding the bike around. Then she became Mrs Hopwood, Both John and Caroline were always so very kind to me. I have the fondest memories of her and John. Bless her soul and all the members of her extended family.

I volunteered along side your Mom with the Legion Ladies Auxiliary. She was a lot of fun and a great worker, very efficient. Very sorry for your loss.
