Frank-Ross-Carmella-Grace & families:
We are very sorry to hear about John. We hope that he didnot suffer. I still remember the happy times we had on the farm, even though I was young as we all were. Time has a way of slipping by. Take care. Love and sympathy

I'm sorry to read of another of our old family passing away. No matter the age, it still leaves a hole in our lives that is only filled by memories of hopefully better times. Their pains are over and they rest now.May he rest in peace and Frankie and Rossi recover from their grief also. - distant cousin Bob Wilson in Dickson.
