I have so many memories of being at your house, first in the country, where you had to drive past a dome to get there (I always thought that was cool), to Hadati Rd in Guelph (getting a strike first time ever bowling 🎳) to Hill St in Elora. Your dad was always so much like my dad, a strong, quiet presence. And always smiling. My heart aches for your loss. May the God of all comfort be with you at this time. I hope we can all reunite very soon! Much love and hugs to all!
