Ken and I both send our sincere condolences to David, Ross, Rob and their families. We grew up on a neighbouring farm near Greenock and like our own mom, we knew June to be another hardworking RNA, mother and farm wife who will be missed but not forgotten.

My deepest condolences on your loss. June was an extremely kind and friendly lady, along with being an extremely hard worker for her entire life. I had numerous wonderful conversations with her over the years about our shared family history. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
