Ted & Myra - Please accept my deepest sympathy on the death of your daughter, Christine. Remember all those good times you had with her. It has been years since I have seen you Ted. So many of our relatives are gone now. Remember visiting your Mom & Dad's place in Peterborough many times when we were young. Dad, Bill Burkitt went to be with Mom in 2011. Take care Bev
