I was just going through my Mom’s address book, Hazel McClaughry to inform them of her passing on the 14 of June 2018. Even though Andy & Hazel resided in Victoria, for many years as they were able they made the trip to Souris and visited Rilance and Eileen. There last trip was in 2002 when Dad was 89. So sorry to hear of your loss even though it was a few years ago.
