Lestra & Margo
Sorry to read about Bill’s passing. I have a lot of fond memories of him from my time working with him at Hollywood, Cat Arm & Colt Construction.
I wish you both well at this difficult time. I will always remember Bill as a friend as much as a good boss.

Greetings, Lestra and Margo and family — Be assured of my sympathy and best wishes to you all during this sad time. With Bill, you all have been good and friendly neighbours for the past 35 years.

Mrs. Stewart, Margo, Bill, Graham and Mitchell,

The Kirby family, Steve and I send our deepest sympathy on the passing of Mr. Stewart.
I was just a pre-teen when I first met him, and he had a lovely headful of red hair then. There were always plenty of bottles of various pickles in his fridge, stacked double high! He was the only person I knew who ate steak and eggs for breakfast.
I remember the fun times we had going to the cabin at Three Island Pond, and “scoring the drag” during our cruises on Water Street. It was always a laugh when he beeped the horn at young couples kissing! And it was a big thrill for me when Mr. Stewart took Margo and I to the Holyrood Generating Station for our school project, and also to the new Atlantic Place before it had even opened.
And he sure loved to come to “Kirby Country” to get a loaf of Mom’s homemade bread.
I hope and pray that you find peace knowing that he is no longer suffering. So many are thinking of you right now.

Love & Prayers,

Margo I am so sorry about your Dad. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Sending love and hugs!
