CASEY PRINS

A short time ago, family and friends gathered at the Christian Reformed Church to celebrate Casey Prins’ life. Casey’s eight children had the honour of carrying his casket to his final resting place; honouring a man who was loved and will be missed by so many.

If a man is honest with others and himself,
If he receives gratefully and gives quietly,
Then he is truly an admirable man.

His Life Lived…
His Life Cherished…
His Life Honoured.
