OUR CONDOLENCES
On June 30th, we lost a dear friend and family member.  Rob MacKean played an instrumental role with West Ottawa and the ringette community as a parent, friend, coach, and past-president.  He will be sorely missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the MacKean family. http://capitalmemorial.sharingmemories.ca/site/Robert-MacKean.html?s=40
