    My sincere condolences to both Tanya and Dustin and your beautiful families. I was so shocked and saddened to hear this news. I know your Mom’s heart was so broken after your dad (Garth) passed away so suddenly. They were two of the best people I had ever met. We always had so much fun when we got together. If there’s any comfort in this, it’s knowing that they are together once again, and will continue to watch over you all.
