Dear Wanda, Tony and Family,
Words can’t express how sad we are to hear of the loss of your dear father and husband.
We wish we could be with you at this time.
Our deepest condolences to you and your family.

Linda, Barry and family

There are few words to convey my condolences to all of you. His very presence captured the love and care he showed and you shared.

May this Hopi Indian prayer comfort you:

“Hold on to what is good
even if it’s a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe
even if it’s a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do
even if it’s a long way from here.
Hold on to your life even
if it’s easier to let go.
Hold onto my hand
even when I’ve gone away from you.”

Wanda and family, really sorry to hear about your Dad. I know how much you looked up to him and adored him. His toughness will live on in you. Keeping you, your Mum and the rest of the family in my prayers and thoughts.

Nancy and family,
Neve and I extend our deepest condolences to you and your family. May Gord rest in peace✝✝
