Dear Ernest & Chris,
We are so saddened to hear of the passing of your dad. i have many good memories of him as he spent weekends at our home in Petitcodiac, before he met your mother. I always admired the passion with which he undertook any new project, hobby or adventure. He will be sadly missed by many, but most painfully by the 2 of you and Lorna and June.
