Tribute :Dear Grace and family- We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. It's always so shocking when they go even if you may expect it to happen because of their age. Your father (& mother) did a wonderful job of raising 5 children in a new country and was so hard working that he was very successful in all that he did. We know he is in a place of peace and rest. Sincerely- Sofia and Dave Sandover
