Kay & Family
Susann & I were saddened to hear of John's passing. Our shared memory was from 2001 and the National Golf Event at Dorval when you and John helped with the tournament along with your friend Winnie Normandeau. Photo of you & John with the Garden's. Mae Wilson also knew them.
Had another when John & Ted Page visited me at the Royal Winter Fair in Toronto.
Sincerely
John & Susann Rodger

It is with great sadness that Bill and I share with you Kay, Susan, Andrea ,Lisa and your families our sincere condolences.
Although our lives have taken us in different directions over the last few years ,we will cherish forever the wonderful memories we have made together.
It is difficult to welcome death but I am sure that after attaining its new conditioning John's spirit is grateful for being released from the bondage of the limited to enjoy the liberties of a new life without pain and suffering .
When someone we love becomes a memory that memory becomes a treasure to live on in our hearts till we meet again.
