To the Lay boys that I grew up with, Terry, Brad and Mike. So sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. I have great memories of your dad pulling us all around Greig Lake behind his boat! All 10 to 12 at a time ! In recent years I enjoyed our chats at ” the lake” as my grandchildren and I walked by. Sorry I won’t be able to be there for the memorial but will be there in spirit. He will be missed. Donna
So sorry to hear of your loss. I didn’t realize your Dad was ill. Sending you all condolences with much understanding.
Thought about you everyday
Our deepest sympathies Terry, Brad and Michael and families. We are left with many great memories of a life well lived.
