Darren & Heather :
I had only met Ivan a few times at Darren & Jens house but the few that I did , he was laughing and carrying on and playing with the kitties ( mostly Teddy ) . From what Jen & Darren had told me ( and showed me :) ) Ivan had LOVED his sweets. Often times me and Jen would be out at the grocery store and Jen would say "oh Ivan would love these I'll have to pick up some ". And sometimes I would find myself telling Jen of something sweet I had found at a store and said to her "hey Jen I bet Ivan would like this ".
I even remember getting lots of candy one year at xmas time , and have it to Jen so that Darren could drop it off to his dad :) I knew he would enjoy it more than I would.
I'm sorry for the loss of your loved one. My thoughts and prayers are with all of your family at this difficult time. It is never easy loosing a loved one even as they get older. Always remember the good times and often chuckle at something that they would have said šŸ’™

Darren and Jennifer,
So sorry to hear the news of the passing of your father, father-in-law. I heard many stories over the years; Jennifer, I know you were very fond of Ivan because the stories you told said that. Thinking of you both during this very difficult time.
