From: nee Else Blonk grad 1974 SOSS
Relation: School bus driver

I remember your father as a quiet, hard-working, decent and reliable bus driver. Not much fanfare, but we could all count on him to get us home safely after school or post-school sporting events at SOSS. Thank you, Mr. Mayer, for being a lovely part of my childhood memories in Oliver. Rest in peace.

Heartfelt condolences to the family. May special memories nestle softly in your heart.
