To Edith and family and Mr. Bishop’s family. So sorry to hear of his passing. He was always so pleasant and kind. Always said hello whenever I met him. I know he will be missed. My sincere sympathies to all of the family.

To My Dear Cousins; Jack, Colleen, Shirley, Jeannie, Joe and their families, our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I remember so vividly the summertime vacations that brought all of you to the Dock Road, Prince Edward Island in a big station-wagon. I remember the sheer excitement in those first few minutes of arrival and the gentle, quiet smile always on your Dads face as he stepped out of the car and would take in the view of all the extended arms of cousins reaching out to greet one another with so many hugs. Then it was all about getting lobster! Beautiful Moments. Love to All! And God’s speed to Uncle Jack.

Please accept our sincere and heartfelt condolances at this very trying time.
