Sincere sympathy to the family of Bert Smeeth. He will be sadly missed by family and friends
Sincere sympathy also to the family and friends of Ricky Thompson.
He always wore a big smile for everyone he met.
Our community is thinking of both families at this sad time.
And sympathy to the family of Robert (Bob) Weatherbee. Bob passed away last week after a battle with cancer.
Bob is the son of the late Morley and Marg (Cooke) Weatherbee.
