Dear Lucy: From the Haid family of Joan and Bill Haid. May we send our deepest condolences on the loss of your husband John.
Its been a few years since we have seen you sadly because in our modern world we all seem to be too busy to visit each other much.
I still have fond memories of the visits when we were younger with my mother and father Joan and Bill. Sadly we have lost dad
back in February and mom about 4 and a half yrs. ago. They always spoke highly of you and considered both of you an important part of the family. John will be missed but his memory will live on forever in our thoughts and prayers.. May God bless all of you.
Sincerely Dennis Haid.

Dear Lucy,
On behalf of Canadian Food for Children, we thank you for allowing John to spend many years as a volunteer with our organization.
His untiring efforts efforts on behalf of the 'poorest of the poor' in 3rd world countries will not go unrewarded as he begins his Heavenly journey. He was a champion of the poor.
