So sorry to hear of Uncle Ralph’s passing. I have so many memories of camping with them at Ponhook. We had so much fun throwing each other off the float in the lake. He would do back flips and the always funny dummy dive where he would dive head first but keep his arms at his side. I’m sure Aunt Evelyn is preparing an amazing feast for him as we speak.
Dear Wanda, Tina, Joe and Clarence:
So sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. He was one great man, brother in law and uncle to us. Eve and Ab were closest in age and always close. We have many fond memories of visiting them in Milton and at Pond Hook and they never came to Boutilier’s Point without dropping in. He lived a good long life and bless you for your care for him all those years especially at the nursing home. Know you are in our thoughts and prayers and rejoice in the thought of all the family members reunited in heaven.
Thinking of you all durning your time of sorrow I have many fond memorys of your dad .Ralph and dad where great friends for many years now they can pick up where they left off hugs to you all.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all in your time of sorrow.
