  1. Hi Rudy
    I bumped into a relation/acquaintance of yours in the Guelph Shoppers Drug Mart and asked her if she knew Rudy Kus ( the package she was mailing was to a Kus). She told me about Lydia passing and that you lived in Kincardine. Sorry about your loss…..
    My son lives in Kincardine so we go there often.
    If you want to get together for coffee send me a note.
