To Tanya and her family and to Jeff and your family, you have my deepest condolences. Your father was like a brother to me and I am so happy I had the opportunity to talk with him on the phone just a couple of weeks ago. I will miss him as I have missed your mother, Mary since her passing. Sending love and wishes for you all at this time of loss and sadness.

We were shocked to hear this news.... so many happy memories of a favourite uncle, and a favourite great uncle to my children. We will miss him... and his teasing!
