Bruce, Clay,Margaret Ann and families. We are so sad to hear about the passing of Dudley (aka Dukie) as I called her when I was younger. She was a great lady and so warm of a welcome when we or I would come to town for any occasion. Jim & Carole Dray.

Bruce, Margaret, Clay and families, thoughts and prayers go out for each and all of you at this most difficult time and in days to come. Dudley was one of the loveliest ladies I have ever known. She always had a beautiful smile, always friendly, thoughtful and caring.
God bless and comfort each of you. With deepest sympathy.
