Ward 3 Quick Update July 25, 2016

Ward 3 Resident,

I just have a few quick items to update you on.

Before I get into my update. On a personal note I want to say thank you to all of you who have offered my family and me your condolences about the very unexpected death of my 37 year old cousin Darryl Langshaw on July 3rd. My cousin Darryl leaves behind a wife, and daughters ages 1 and 4 here in North Royalton. Some of you have also asked how you can help. Your prayers are most appreciated. A memorial fund has also been established for his children. Click Here if your interested in learning more. Again thank you so much for all your support it has meant so much to my family!
