Gary, Brenda and family. As a child growing up in Colborne I have fond memories of your mom and dad, especially the card games they shared with my mom and dad. However my fondest memory was getting to swim in their indoor pool. I still remember begging my parents to get us an invitation. I thought your parents were so cool to have the pool and so generous to let us use it. We are so sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
