To Aunt Bessie, Danny, Paul, Karen & your families. Sending our condolences and remembering Uncle Jake who was a beloved brother to our mother, Mary. She often exclaimed that he could fix anything that he put his hand to. She had a collection of wooden bowls that he had made and given to her. During my childhood, I remember his frequent drop-in visits where he would always find a cup of coffee and something sweet to eat while he filled her in on the family and McGillivray township gossip. Sincerely, Anne McLachlan, Chuck Stoffle & family
