  1. My parents were very good friends with Floyd and Norma. They played Canasta once a month for many, many years with a group from Dublin and Stephenville while the kids ran wild outside.
    I’m sorry to hear of their passing but after being married for so many years it is a blessing they passed together. Say Hello to my Mom and Dad and the rest of the Canasta bunch. Who knows… maybe y’all will be playing Canada in Heaven.
