I send my sympathy to Rudy , Karen, Doug, Kathy and extended family. Vera was always so sweet and kind to me. Always a big smile. She never failed to make my day whenever I would see her “Denise you never look any older” She made the best glazed doughnuts in the world. She will be missed!

Barb Seely

My fondest memories of your Mom is the skits she used to be in for the Buck Lake Ladies Bonspiels and how much fun she was to curl against. Our deepest sympathies to you and your families.
