Rhonda Williams & Dale MacDonald
Thinking of you during this difficult time.We send our sincere condolences.
I was saddened to learn of your Dads passing.
It brought back memories of the good times I had as a child at the Chandler home, playing in the barn loft, and the many times I climbed on the old army truck for a ride to school.
Felicia and Kenny were the kind of warm and caring people who helped to make our community a great place to grow up.
I mourn your loss and take comfort in the memories of a simpler time when we measured our good fortune by the love of our family, and the friends we had.
My prayers go out to all members of the family. (Ralphie)

To Aubrey and Family
I am so sorry for your loss. It was quite an experience getting to know your Dad. He always had a story to tell and a laugh to share. Judging by that alone, one could only guess he must have had a colourful life. He will certainly be missed by me and by those who worked with him.
