So sorry here to hear the passing of Vesta. She will be greatly missed by our family as well as yours. She was a wonderful friend and person. Unfortunately we will not be able to make it down to the funeral, as we have two other commitments here in Canada. We will visit her and Herm's grave in October when we come down.

Love John, Judy, Julie and Jamie
Our deepest condolences on the recent passing of Vesta.
