With lots of fond memories of Alec and Isabel over the years.
As his older brother, I was fortunate enough, in company with my wife Nina and our son Andrew ( Rex to many ), to be able to travel from U.K. to Canada and visit Alec in hospital, where he often seemed his usual jovial self. We were all therefore very shocked to learn shortly afterwards that he had died. Will miss you a great deal. My thoughts will always be with you.

Although our opportunities to chat with Alec were few, they were enough to know his kind, sincere nature. We realize the loss and regret the pain felt by those who were much closer to him. May Alec remain with you in all your days for you are part of his legacy.
