Remembering all the wonderful times of living across the road from Harry & Florence. The loving ways they played with Brady as a small boy will always be special. Florence was quite the baseball player, making Brady a very happy boy. Our sincerest sympathy to Dorothy, Grace & families.
Memories are a wonderful thing and we will treasure ours. May Florence RIP and May it give you some comfort to know that Harry & Florence are once again reunited.
Love Leslie (Matheson) Groot & Brady Siddall
