Clifford, Chris and Calvin (and families) - I am so very terribly sorry to hear about your mom's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. It's difficult to think that she was the last of her generation of McKernon's to leave. May she be reunited with your dad. All the best to you, with your good memories.
