Our families have been linked since the 1960’s so many fond memories of our times as neighbours and friends, our parents raised us as family, many shared school pickups, meals and roadside games, and bus trips to school…. the Garreffa’s, the Zappia’s, the Rocca’s and the Matulic’s of Ontario Avenue. Thinking of you at this sad time and sending you our prayerful support.
