It is with shock and sincere sympathy to family and friends in the passing of Brian Reid.
He was a friendly soul, with top notch “customer service ethics.”
Always a smile and genuinely cared about people.
As people’s heads and hearts take in this sad news, take time to remember that Brian’s memory will live on forever with his family, friends and Cloverleaf Grocery Store.

Sincere sympathy also to the family and friends of Donna Sheppard–a kind soul who loved life and her family. Always a smile and hello.
She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
Our rural communities are thinking of you all at this sad time.
