It’s been many years since we spoke and over 40 years since we worked together at Sobeys. I only had known Brian a little. (He bought a motorcycle from me around 1985)
I know several of the folks who wrote in here which shows what a small community we are.
I’m so sorry to hear about Brian’s passing!

My loving caring daughter, her devotion to her children and husband Brian especially since his illness and hospitalisation is beyond reproach.
On your wedding day you took a vow before God to love and to honour in sickness and in health, this vow you are surely keeping.
Remember also that God will not lay a burden on your shoulders that you are not able to carry.
I love you my children. God bless you both.
