I had the privilege of caring for Mr. Lake while he resided at Agnes Pratt Nursing Home. He always had a smile for me a story to tell. He will be greatly missed. My sympathies to you all.

Deepest sympathy on the passing of a dear friend that I will truly miss. Meals at the dining room will never be the same. That space across the table can never be replaced. I met John at Agnes Pratt where I too reside. We shared great conversation & company.
Saddened by the passing of a man I’m grateful to have met if only for a few short years.
Condolences to Glenda & family.

Oh Glenda…. Johnny, Ken (and families). Soooo unbelievably shocked and saddened by the passing of your Dad. I had no idea …..

So very sorry to hear of Jack’s passing. Aunt Mary’s family were very close to us as we grew up in Milltown. I have so many good memories of Jack, he was always kind to us. I remember him taking me on horseback (Blackie) for a ride . He played the accordion so well and it was always great to be there when he played at the CEAA “Time”. My sincere sympathy to all of you.
