My sympathy to the family. Mr Pierce was a client of mine for many years and we always enjoyed talking about cottage life, since he had a cottage on Brooks Lake and I have one on Hess Lake. It was a pleasure to be his agent for many years. He truly was a fine gentlemen and it was an honor to have known him and your mother. Jean Roon. Ottawa Kent Insurance Agency
