    I fondly remember Bette (Mrs Sneed) from Barrie Drive in Kamllops. She was the mother of Tony and Nathan, two of my favorite road hockey buddies. My family lived in the crook of Barrie Drive and we all played together often. Mr and Mrs Sneed were always great to us while we hung out at their place. Years have passed and I was unaware of both Nathan and Bette’s passing. Bill, pease accept my condolences for your losses. As per my previous comments, I have nothing but fond memories and that had much to do with you and Bette. I hope you can find solace in your own memories.
