We were so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. We are sure that all those old hunters will remember many hours, with him, travelling the back roads in search of Birds or Moose.
Our thoughts are with all of you at this difficult time.

Awe Tootie, you will be missed! It was my honor to work with you at the Englehart Hospital. Loved going into stores to share a laugh with you. You were always a happy person, could always lift a persons spirits up! Even if it was just to see that smile of yours! Huge hugs sent out to the family day. xoxoxo
