One Condolence for “CLARK, Ross”

  1. Les and Judi Baker says:

    We lived next door to Ross and Merna for over 12 years. They were the best, friendliest and kind neighbours. They loved our three children and the kids responded to them.
    Judi rememembers them having quite a loud discussion about where to plant things, in the garden. One day Jude hollers over the fence, ” are you two at it again”. We would all laugh because we cannot remember them ever arguing or not getting along,
    Jude is a nurse and would frequently go to their house to give advice on anything medical.
    One more thing… Ross was good at fixing things. He got his air conditioner going, in his car. But he totally designed something himself, to make it work. We loved Ross and our thoughts of love and peace go out to Merna and her family.
