Even though we haven’t seen you in a while, we hope you know that you are in our hearts and prayers. My mind goes back to the farm, helping Uncle Jack with the milking (actually, just mostly getting in the way), doing the haying (actually, just mostly getting in the way), and waking up early to do the chores (and then promptly falling asleep in the hay). The morals of the story are that city boys should never visit farms, and that Uncle Jack was one of the kindest, sweetest, selfless, and happy people you could ever meet.

we remember your dad as always being happy, with a smile on his face and a story to tell. He will be missed at church. May God's peace surround your family and may he give you all comfort. Hugs and love from Leah and Rex

Mr. deBoer was the custodian at Walpole North when my children were young. Our little boy came home and said the Mr. Divorce would such him up in the vacuum cleaner if he got in the way when he was cleaning. I told him his name was Mr. deBoer - he was adamant that it was Mr. Divorce. Mr. deBoer was so good with the kids and was always joking with them. It was always nice to have a little chat with him when I saw him in Hagersville. Our sincerest sympathy to his wife and family.
