Randi & Charlene,
Please accept this brief note of sorrow for your sons passing.
We have not crossed paths for many years , but spent lots of time on the ice together. We have lunch once a month with coach Dupe and I will make sure all know of this; a large group of friends with many prayers and good thoughts for you and Charlene.
Please kiss your wife for us all.
