Our Thoughts and Prayers go Out to the Families Of Carley
I Know the Family as I Grew Up next Door to Roland And Catherine

They All Helped Out To Build Back Our Home, When We lost it Due To The Fire in the Harsh Winter of 1962 Thank You All.....You're All Good Folks.
And May God Bless
Godspeed Carley..
