Would also like to thank Danny Lopez who has been a very close friend of the family and has been a constant in our lives and especially Mom of late. We want to thank the staff at Heritage Village in Port Alberni and most recently the staff at Arrowsmith Lodge for their care and support of Mom and our family over the last few years.
There will be a Celebration of Life service in Port Alberni @ 1:00 pm Saturday January 18, 2020 to be held at the Christian Reformed Church 5033 Roger Street.
