Honour MCpl Byron Greff

On Tuesday, Rod and I were in Toronto at the Coroner’s Office to honour MCpl Byron Greff. We left at 8:30pm and to start our journey to Alberta. We drove through the night but had a short stop to sleep outside of Chicago. We arrived in Fargo, North Dakota at 5:00pm to stay for the night. As we traveled, we have had many comments and questions regarding the Canadian Heroes Car. The Border guard in Port Huron was very impressed with the car and our trip’s purpose. At gas stop, we had hugs and pictures. Today we drove to Edmonton. We will be staying with our son, Jamie, who is stationed in Edmonton. We will be attending a candlelight vigil in Lacombe AB for MCpl Greff on Friday.
