Dear Aunt Karen and Family
I am so sorry about Uncle David passing away. He was a very awesome Uncle. He was one of my favorite Uncles. It does not seem possible that he has passed away. I will never going to forget when you all came to my Mom & Dad's house - Aunt Karen - Uncle David - Cousin Jody and Mark. Matthew was not born yet. You spent a few days in Walkerton visiting everyone. Jody and Mark was little yet. We all really enjoyed that visit. Uncle David was so orniery but he was alot of fun to be around with and to talk to. He is going to be greatly missed. We will be there with you in Spirit. We will be thinking of you during this difficult time in your lives.
