Ron and family . I was saddened to hear of you Dads passing, especially at this unforeseen time of CVID-19.
Milton was always very kind and a great neighbour to our family when I was living on Whitten’s lane as a child. My memories are only as a child and during a few visit’s back to NL over the years. My condolences to all the Whitten Family’s and especially your mom at this sad time.
