To the entire Parsons Family,
I was truly saddened by the loss of Uncle Bus – he was such a kind, caring and thoughtful person. Every year, I looked forward to attending the large family gathering at Uncle Bus’ on Boxing Day and I have so many treasured memories of our family from those times. He and Vera were always such wonderful hosts and made everyone feel welcome and loved. May these and other happy memories along with the love and support from family and friends comfort everyone during these difficult times. We will miss you dear Uncle – may you rest in peace.

To Hector’s Family,
Sending our deepest sympathy on the loss of your loved one.
Bill and Louise

My condolences to the Parson family.

I met Hector during his stay at Admiral’s Coast.

Rest peacefully my friend.

My heart is with you all today . Some of my most cherished Christmas memories are of the times we spent together at Uncle Bus ‘ house on Boxing Day . I will always remember his kind , gentle heart and his love for family. It seemed to me that every Parsons sibling and cousin felt that love as their spouse and children became part of the huge family tree on the family room wall at Mc Masters place . He is reunited with his beloved Vera and will live forever in our hearts . Til we meet again……

Carol and family

To the entire Parsons Family,
I was deeply saddened to hear of Uncle Bus’s passing. He was such a kind and gentle soul. I fondly remember the family gatherings he and Aunt Vera hosted. I hope those memories will help everyone through this difficult time.
Love Jim and family.

Dear Stephen, Amanda and Furby,
I was so sad to hear of Uncle Bus’s passing. So glad he was able to be with you all these past few months. Last year, at Dad’s funeral, Uncle Bus gave us the fishing flies Dad had tied for him some 60 years before. We were able to share them with Dad’s grandchildren, a wonderful gift from Uncle Bus and Dad. So thoughtful. I remember as a kid visiting Newfoundland, your Dad always had a paint by numbers set for me to do while I was there. I loved them. I remember how your Dad loved to collect everything he could about his family history. Though I hadn’t been able to see him often since I left Newfoundland, I will always remember his smile and generous spirit. My your memories of happier times and the support of family and friends carry you through this difficult time. Much love, Bev, Bob and family.

To The Parsons Family,
Please accept my deepest condolences in the passing of Mr. Parsons. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Heaven has gained another angel. RIP Mr. Parsons

So sorry for your loss Steven. May he rest in peace.
From Andy Lippert & wife.
