So sorry to hear about Karl passing away. I remember him as such a good role model and always being at his children's events. He sure raised fine children and I am happy to have known all of them. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sad to hear about the passing of my Uncle June…My mind is flooded with great memories of many times I was with him…camping, boating, trips to the mountain and being at his home. He was an awesome man! His kind and fun loving ways made him great to be around. His laughter was contagious. The last time I saw him was at the cabin in Terra Alta. My dad, Butch and I were up for several days and he came to see us. We spent a long time reminiscing “old times” and laughed till we were all hurting! I will never forget the twinkle in his eyes as he remembered all of the great experiences we all had together. I will remember him as a man filled with great joy and kindness. Uncle June was a very good man!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
