Shelly, Norm, Barb & family,

Your parents were special people to our family. My Mom & Dad (Marj & Ken) shared many Frankie & Buster stories of the good old days, and more recent times in Arizona. Usually centering around lots of laughs at the dinner table, during cards, and playing golf. Mom & Dad also shared with us about how supportive Frankie & Buster were, along with Pat & Willy, to them when grieving the loss of Jim & Marge. For me, I will never forget the family reunions & remembering that if there was noise & laughter in the vicinity, your Dad was always in the middle of it. As for your Mom, I will remember her affection every time we met which was always a big hug & kiss. The family pictures at the end of the service match up with many of the oldies we have. Maybe we can have a bit of a reunion of our own by pulling out our albums and going through them together sometime. You were blessed with parents who boldly lived out their faith in words and action by their friendliness & hospitality for which you can be forever proud and consider as an example for us all to follow.

So sorry for your loss, Frankie was always a favorite for me at the annual Durnford senior bbq’s. She was a lively gal, had a genuine interest when listening to the stories around the table. RIP to you both.

Hugs Norman and Barb and Shelly and Greg,
I can’t imagine the hole that is left behind from such special parents. You have been so blessed to have them for a time. Yet what a joy for them to be together again in the presence of God for eternity. I remember all the family reunions we all enjoyed as I was growing up–the fun, the laughter, the singing and the hugs all around. No one hugged like your mom and no one teased like your dad! This time truly is bitter sweet. I can’t wait till we are all together again. The reunion for us all in heaven is going to be great!! What a day that will be. Blessings and prayers to you and your families. Hugs and Hugs (like your mom always gave … tight and long!)
Karen
