David and Family,

Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your father. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.


Tutton Family:
When Edith and I were young Lieutenants your parents were so encouraging to us as we began our ministry. We felt very blessed to have known them. As you share in these days the passing of your Dad our thoughts and prayers are with you. Scripture that reminds us of the hope that is ours in Jesus. 1Pet. 1:3-4 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you.”

George, Stephen, David and families,
I was saddened to hear of your Dad’s passing, yet I also rejoice in his Promotion to Glory. I am grateful for the lovely connection that developed with both your parents over the years and the friendship they shared with my family was highly valued. More recently, I appreciated the opportunity to visit with your Dad whenever I was in St. John’s and I shall treasure the memories of those conversations, especially the last visit we enjoyed in December, just a day or two before his 90th birthday. Now, as you celebrate his life may you find comfort in the assurance that he has entered into the joy of his Lord whom he loved and served for so long. Praying God’s grace and peace for you all in these days.

Steven,George,David and family.

Our family’s friendship dates back to the 70’s in Labrador. Over the years there have been many laughs and tears shed together. I am glad I phoned your dad just a couple of weeks ago to say hi.
He will be remembered with great fondness. Our family sends our deepest sympathy and our prayers. I will always remember (Clink), and his impact on my life.
