I miss you so much daddy, a piece of my heart has gone with you and my sadness is overwhelming, but with our family and friends around us, it has made things easier! I Love you daddy xx

Love you Grampy:
Knowing Grampy was an honour
His humour and wit
We loved to poke fun
Even if it made you uncomfortable a bit
His smile beamed bright
He was so full of pride
Uniting the family
With Granny alongside
He valued the family
With unconditional love
Love we share together today
As he looks down and smiles from above.

Miss you so much Grampy. I am so grateful to have always felt a part of this family the past 6 years and will carry on so much of what I have learned from you. Family is top priority always, and never underestimate the love, support and appreciation of them no matter what struggles you are going through. You have helped shape the wonderful man I will be with for the rest of my life, and though I will miss you at our wedding, I am also grateful you were there to witness him proposing to me. We will hold all our memories of you dear to our heart and remember you daily as the one and only 'Grampy.' ? We love you. Rest In Peace.

The world has lost a great husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle.

We all knew his sense of humour.

I'll always remember when we were at family get togethers, he would always and willingly play along when we decided to take the mickey out of some unsuspecting and gullible Auntie. He could keep at straight face even when the rest of us "men" were bursting at the seems. Great fun. Great Gentleman.

We will all miss you, very much.

Brother-in-Law.
We have such wonderful memories of you back in the 50's when you an Ken were in the Navy. We as sisters double dated and we ended up marrying you both.You had 54 wonderful years with Eunice and four great kids.
Our last holiday together was filled with laughter and great happy - hours Although we knew then you were not well. but you never let that stop you from doing things and going places.. We had a great laugh pushing you around Niagara Falls in a wheel chair we all saw the funny side of that as only you would. Of course it would be the last time we would see you, and our life will be empty without you You will be loved and missed for ever..
Eunice we love you and will be with you in spirit. x0x0x0
Your sister June and Brother-ln-law Ken

Uncle Tony was warm, funny and kind. He always saw the funny side of life.
In time the emptiness we all feel will be filled with the wonderful memories we have of him. Our thoughts are with all our family in UK and Canada. We will miss our phone calls from "Santa at the north pole" as he used to say to us.

Jim was the best family friend we could have hoped to have.
We are honored to have known him and to have his fun and humor touch our lives.
His passing will bring great sadness to everyone who knew him.
We are sure that Peter will be waiting for him, glass in hand, to share a wee dram.
Our thoughts and profound sympathies are with his family at this difficult time.
Mary, Judith, Alison, Simon and Bryan
