Dear Bev,
We are so sorry to hear of Tom’s death. Bonnie is going to be away from Sept. 8 until the 18th so will be unable to attend the memorial service but Gordon hopes to attend. We have known you both for so many years and always enjoyed your company at curling, playing cards or just visiting. Gordon always respected Tom’s opinion about gardening especially growing garlic!
Sending our love and prayers, Bonnie and Gordon
