Audrey and family;

Thinking of each and every one of you as you journey through these very difficult days. It's getting about that time of year that we expect John and Gary to head to Boiestown again for another weekend of pickin' and grinnin'. It still hasn't sunk in that it isn't going to happen. Ken and I have had the pleasure of knowing him for the past 15 years and have many, many fond memories of him. He was one of a kind. May you hold your memories close and take comfort in knowing that he was very, very loved. Praying for your strength.

Kari (Swazey) & Ken Price

Dear Audrey and Sherri:

I wish we could be together right now. I am deeply saddened to know that he has passed on. Dear Uncle Orson, you dont even know how much I loved you. I am telling you now, you were very special to me all my life and will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers always. We have some wonderful memories together, chasing me with lobsters when i was a little girl. Giving me a drive in your shiny new convertible and me thinking you were a movie star. Visiting with the family when you were posted in Ottawa, just to name a few. Audrey and Sherri, I send my love to you both, many warm hugs. I will miss him dearly.

For John's Family:

We were very saddened to hear of John's passing. His sense of humour and great personality were so much appreciated on the occasions that we saw him in the Minto and Grand Lake area. His entertainment at our son's wedding helped make the day very special. Our deepest sympathy to you all.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this tragic time. John was a good friend and neighbour for the past 30 years. As a friend and fellow member of the CPVA we extend our deepest sympathies to Audrey and the family. Just a few days ago john came over to talk to me and chat for awhile as he did many times, if we were both outside doing something around the house whether it be mowing the lawn or removing snow from the driveways. I will miss him.

Audrey & Sherri,
I have a heavy heart thinking of how much you are going to miss Orsen. He sure knew how to "light up a room" with his great laugh and sense of humor. Karen & Sandra have great memories of him when they last came home with me - just wish Tina and John had been there too. Hopefully your memories, especially of this past summer, will be some comfort to you. Love from all of us!
