Remembering Laverne Bowles

From: Dorothy and Greg Juszczyk
Patricia please accept our sincere condolences and sympathy with the passing of your husband Laverne. We both knew him well enough to appreciate his kindness, hard work, and his sense of humor. We always looked forward to his annual wood delivery, which was an occasion to chat and laugh together. We will miss him.

From: Shelley Fisk
Our deepest sympathy to you all. He was a always such a happy person, I remember going to your place and doing firewood with Uncle Laverne and my Dad and getting to ride in the "Wood Truck" back to Belwood, And stopping at that place in Varney for lunch. Also the day I saw a bear track in your bush and I was convinced when we walked I would for sure be met with one. And of course the best Maple Syrup Canada has to offer. Sending love and virtual hugs until we can gather xoxo Love; Josh, Shelley and Maxim Fisk
