Julie, Lisa and Colleen, my most heartfelt condolences on the passing of your sweet dad AL. He and I worked together many many years ago at the Civic Centre and he was such a great boss! I remember the many visits to his house to visit you Julie and Jamie and how kind he always was. I can speak from experience so take comfort in knowing that he is resting easy now and he is not suffering. I am sure he was warmly joined by many angels and is already enjoying a cup of coffee with my dad and many others. Take one day at a time, cherish and remember the memories always. Hugs my dear friends.
