How fortunate we were , when we bought a business in downtown Cobourg , that Janice Brooks was one of the employees there. She was kind, loving, caring, and sincere. What an asset to a business and what a friend ! When she decided to retire she gave us her two year notice, but then stayed on for another year and a half after that. Eric, Anne and Kelly our thoughts and prayers are with you at this very trying time.
