Thank-you to our many friends and co-workers for the overwhelming support we were given in the death of our daughter Krista. The meals, flowers, donations and all of your support was unbelievable. Thank-you to Clayton’s Funeral Directors, The Lakeview Church and staff (especially Stu), Verna Cummins for the tea, Rick and Cindy Sterling for Rick’s fabulous woodworking skills and Cindy for your time and caring, and Nancy at Safeway. I don’t think I’ve seen such beautiful arrangements. Lastly, we need to thank Trudy Monk. We could not have done this without you Trudy. You made the service so beautiful and complete. Thanks to our daughter Kandis for everything. We love you. If we forgot anyone we apologize.
Murray and Ila Arno
