Our deepest sympathy to the Reist Family . When we moved to the 6th of Bruce over 40 years ago the Reist Family were our neighbours. We enjoyed a lot of laughter and advise from Helen. She taught me to make homemade chocolates for Christmas one year. Our kids loved them too. Grandpa I send you a big hug and will visit when the lockdown is over,Stay safe and healthy.Hugs to the rest of the family . Sincerely, Larry and Jane
