Condolence & Memory Journal

This makes me so very sad, yet so happy for Sid that he is finally free from his body and with his Lord! Sid did amazing work on our church stage design team for many years and also was a good friend who built our deck and did work inside our home as well. He was a blessing to me and I have missed him so much these past years. Norma you have been an amazingly faithful wife, for which you will be duly rewarded in the afterlife. I just received the notice of the wake--which was too late for me to attend. I teach a class during the hour of the funeral, so please accept in writing my deepest sympathy and love. Jim De Boer
