Our hearts go out to the Yorke Family. Aubrey was a great friend of ours. Our memories include his wonderful smile, watching hockey games with a huge bowl of popcorn. Nova and Max would be sleeping peacefully at his feet. Epic fishing outings and stories from his many adventures. Jackie you are in our prayers. Memories will sustain us.
