Kelly, Kerri and family, It is our hope that you find even a little comfort in the words written here by your family members and friends. We remember your dad as being a wonderful person who obviously cared deeply for his family. He had a good sense of humour and encouraged his children to always do their best! Travel often to those good memories.
