A note from Darlene about her trip with husband Jim in 2016. "We went on the Great Canadian War Memorial Tour last Sept. 2016. Both of our Fathers fought in France, Holland & Belgium and I have an Uncle buried in Beny-sur-mer near Juno Beach were he was killed on D-Day. His name is on the maple leaf shaped plaque on Canada House on Juno Beach. We are both changed and with great pride and respect for all men and women who served and the ones that gave their lives for our freedom which most people take for granted. Like the old saying goes you had to be there to understand." Darlene Ford 519-762-2990
