    So very sorry to hear of your mom. Earl and Stella were dear friends of Terry’s father Walter Barnes(des) and we continued the friend ship every times we came to Canada from the States. What a delightful couple they were. We have missed them being close the last few years...always had breakfast at the Millpond in Canarvon. Please let us know when the memorial in Canarvon will be.. Will keep Earl in our thoughts. Will truly miss Stella.
