So sorry to hear about Mrs. Leach’s passing. She was a great lady. We have fond memories of her, mostly, at hockey games watching David and our son Joey play. She had a good life, well lived. Our condolences. Bill & Ruth Rettinger.

Aunt Lil was always a caring aunt and Godmother to me. Our O’Krafka Christmas Eve’s when I was child were always spent at Aunt Lil’s house, which was the family homestead with a carol sing-song, like all family get-to-getters, and the Lord’s Prayer was always the last one sung by all! Many wonderful, warm fuzzy memories!
