Thank you to all friends and family who reached out with phone calls to check on Dennis and I during his cancer struggle. He missed his golf buddies, trips, grandkids and finding bargains at local charity shops.
Your donations to The Walker Family Cancer Centre are his wish. It is
impossible to get together due to Covid, please stay safe so we will be able to celebrate his life and our health. Give your family a hug.
Wife and companion for 37 years, Debbie Smith
