I miss my big brother but am so grateful for the many happy memories I have. Our young years when he tried to take charge of his little sisters (didn’t work quite the way he hoped). Moving up north and the many adventures we had. When you went anywhere with him in his ‘58 Chevy there was no guarantee it would come off without a hitch. When Uncle George came on the weekends it was so much more fun. We would pile into his VW bug and have singalongs as we drove wherever that bug would take us. Hiking with him and Tom when I fell off a log and had to buy coffee as forfeit for being a sloppy hiker. And my latest happy memory at VGH when the Music Therapist was there. The 3 of us sang a favourite song from our Uncle George days - Side by Side. What a privilege.
I love my big brother and will miss him forever.

My oldest biggest big brother. Although we were 20 years apart in age we still had the bond as if we were only a few years apart. You took care of me like a big brother should. You protected me, supported me, and teased me. You cared for my boys and protected them as your own. Your guidance provided them with much confidence they needed.
Although I'm still feeling lost, my heart is settled knowing you're finally at peace and pain free. Love you more than my next breath big brother.

You worked so hard for your family and sacrificed just as much. You were a loving, caring, generous, funny and determined man. Although we had a period of time when we were apart and where life jumps in we also had the pleasure of regaining a father/daughter relationship. We have gone through so much. I/we have seen and felt your pain. I cry because I miss you dearly but I smile because you are resting.

I remember everything, the first time we met and something inside said “this is the man you will marry”, our courting days and our lives together. You always held my hand, no matter what we were going through.
Too many years apart, then finding each other again, I’m so glad we found love again. I’m missing you so very much sweetheart but I will see you in my dreams.
Until we meet again ❤️494❤️
