To one of my favourite families growing up. It didn't matter if we were at the barn on the 10th, The cottage, the chalet, or McGivern St. I will always remember the Memories with your family. Your Mom always made sure we were busy and if we weren't she would come up with something for us to do. Such an amazing person and will always be apart of my childhood and growing up. Thanks for all the memories Nancy and family.

Hugs to all ❀️
