Muriel, Dwaine & Janice, Darcy & Bernice, Kim. I have so many memories of summer picnics and boating and fishing that my family enjoyed with yours. I and my siblings remember many Halloween's and trick or treating with Dwaine, Darcy and Kim with my dad and Clarence driving us around and being our chaperones. I can see my dad leaning forward in his favorite chair, while Mr. R. and him exchanged a joke and then a good chuckle. There are so many fond memories that my family and yours have shared over the years. Rest peacefully Mr. R. Your years of friendship are cherished. Love Diane and Darryl Kacher
